Dr. Andrew Thall
Departments: Mathematics and Computer Science
Dr. Andrew Thall is a man of many talents — as an undergraduate at Kalamazoo College, he majored in mathematics, but was only interested in pure mathematics theory. After college, he worked as a baker, and then in a photo lab, before going back to school part-time.
“When I began my graduate work at Carolina, I happened to wander into the computer science building,” the associate professor of mathematics and computer science says. “This was when they were designing their own graphics supercomputers and just starting to work with virtual reality. It was then I decided to study computers.”
