Caroline Arteaga pursues a major in mathematics at UCF. Previously, she dabbled in chemistry, psychology, and Latin American studies as possible academic centers. Even though she did not continue in these fields, the varied experiences culminated to a bare desire for knowledge. Understanding information at its most basic core, i.e. “pure” math, was her passion. Understanding numbers would allow her form relationships with other subjects. Caroline is a member of the Exoplanets Research Group at UCF. Here, she is learning computational programming to unscramble the exoplanet data transmitted from the Spitzer Space Telescope. Caroline hopes to pursue a doctoral degree in mathematics to then conduct research professionally, whether in astronomy, psychology, computational systems or any science that could benefit from this knowledge.
