Korin Carpenter has been studying Applied Mathematics at the University of Rochester. During his studies at U of R, Korin worked as a research assistant on a joint project with Cornell University, which led him to presenting the results of the research at a conference in San Francisco. After U of R, Korin will be attending UC Irvine in a PhD program about Earth System Science with a focus on Climate Dynamics.

Korin credits New Roots with his success, “New Roots encouraged me to step up and ask questions, and to volunteer for opportunities that I might otherwise have felt unqualified for.”
