Jason Hathcock

Researcher and Designer
Bio
  • B.S. Mathematics, Minor Chemistry, University of Texas at Arlington, 2013

Jason Hathcock studied mathematics and chemistry at the University of Texas at Arlington, receiving an Honors B.S. in Mathematics with a minor in Chemistry. He continued to study mathematics under Dr. Andrzej Korzeniowski at the graduate level, with an emphasis in applied probability. He produces the photographs, and musical numbers for the videos of the Research Cortex, and assists Dr. Traylor in her research endeavors.

His hobbies include composition for the guitar, beautiful typesetting, and quietly critiquing film.
