If you're worried that a mathematics degree might limit your career options, then there couldn't be a better person to talk to than Steve Hewson. Find out how his varied career has taken him from the lofty heights of theoretical physics, via the trading floor of a major investment bank, into the maths classroom, and has also seen him writing his very own maths book.

I love that Steve chose, at the age of 8, to do a PhD in general relativity!
At the age of 8, I wanted to play cricket for Australia, or perhaps climb that cool tree at the back of our yard....  At 10:58 PM, Alex said...
