About Will Perkins

By day, Will Perkins studies how random numbers help solve the most difficult computational problems; by night, he sings and plays guitar in his country-western band, The Halfway Houseband. A PhD candidate in math at New York University, Will moved to Berlin in August 2010 to continue his studies in probability and theoretical computer science at Technische Universität Berlin. He’s now collaborating with German math professors, exploring Berlin and its environs by bicycle, attending live music performances, and learning German with Rosetta Stone Version 4 TOTALe. Will started using Rosetta Stone two months before arriving in Europe, and is happy that it’s boosted his confidence in speaking with those around him.
