Hello Maths wizards and apprentices
My name is Max, I'm a Podiatry Student with a provisional interest in research. Unfortunately maths is one of these topics that I, like many others, have spent my life running away from. But you cant escape it! And it is gosh darn interesting.

I have been offered a summer job at the university acting as a research assistant to a PhD student looking a intrinsic foot muscle strength. I will have to learn a lot fast in order to keep up and be useful to my PhD boss. So I anticipate that I will be doing a great deal of posting with regards to statistics over the next few months.

Hi Max;

Welcome to the forum!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
