University Colorado at Boulder and Denver, U of New Mexico Applied Math/Biomath

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

After a dreadful application season, I want to start my searching early and have been reading up on University of Colorado at Denver and Boulder, along with U of New Mexico. I'm interested in the Applied Math graduate program and more specifically into Biomath. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments about these three schools?

I don't know much about biomath, but CU Boulder would easily be considered the strongest applied math program out of those three. Do they have any faculty members that you are interested in working with?

I'm still looking at their professors but I was very interested in their research areas. I don't see many professors at Denver that specialize in Biomath. As for Boulder, I'll look into it asap. Do you have anything to add on that?

From what I understand, the CU Boulder Applied Math program is definitely a good "up and coming" program that has been improving in reputation over the years and is probably better than most ratings indicate (at least US News). I hear their weather is excellent and campus is beautiful as well. They seem to have three professors working on mathematical biology, but I'm not familiar with anybody in mathematical biology to know their reputation specifically. Their people in computational math are strong, though (not sure if you have any interest there). I considered joining this program, but turned down their offer since I had several more appealing offers.

Here are the NRC rankings for applied math, which may be of interest to you:

Arizona might also be a good choose for a solid Applied Math program (probably equivalent to CU Boulder in strength). I think they're doing a lot of interdisciplinary stuff there, including mathematical biology and a lot of related areas.
