Megan Crossing is a Bachelor of Arts student at the University of Adelaide. Although she is majoring in mathematics, she also studies a range of Roman and Ancient Greek literature and languages. Megan hopes to use this broad interest range to enter the field of mathematical humanities as she progresses into further study. She is particularly interested in how mathematics and information theory can be used to study ancient languages and improve our understanding of them.
