CCNY Graduate Yu Xuan Huang

June 3, 2021

Yu Xuan Huang is graduating from CCNY in 2021 with a M.S. in Mathematics. He is going to move on to work at NASA as a statistical engineer!

Hear about it from Yu Xuan Huang himself!

My name is Yu Xuan Huang. First, congratulations to everyone and myself for the class of 2021. I am a student in the Master of Science program in Mathematics with interest in cybersecurity, blockchain, cryptography and data science. Currently, I’m working at NASA Langley Research Center as statistical engineer participating in Commercial Supersonic Technology (CST) project to analyze the aircraft data by using data science and machine learning techniques. I will continue my position after I graduate from CCNY. My work is very rewarding, as I’m contributing to NASA Missions and improving my knowledge in real-world application of mathematics.

I would like to recognize Professor Rosario Gennaro, Professor Shirshendu Chatterjee and Professor Jack Hanson for their support and their excellent teaching skills.

I decided to study Mathematics because mathematics builds problem-solving skills that trains our brain to seek solutions in a logical way and it’s the infrastructure for engineering. On these grounds, I’m interested in exploring the infinite possibilities that math can contribute to this world and its inhabitants.
