Josh Troy is intrigued by the boundary between mathematics and reality. He finds great fascination in the surprising ability for beautiful mathematical structures, often motivated by fun problems, to describe and help understand the world through physics, modelling, optimisation, and more. Josh will pursue an Honours in Mathematical Physics in 2023 at the University of Western Australia and intends to stay close to the Physics Society and Maths Union to help share his passion for the two fields. In addition to the objective sciences, Josh loves to read and learn about all fields, as it is often in the intersections of fields that the toughest problems find their most creative solutions.
Aside from studying, Josh enjoys (non-combat) boxing, and struggles to get the right ratio of rice to water.
