Maharishi University of Management alumnus Tristan Webb recently finished his PhD in complexity science at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom. His research focused on the computational neuroscience of decision-making, looking to advance the understanding of issues such as our speed-accuracy trade-off, noise in the brain, and neural communication.

Tristan has been programming computers since the age of ten. He came to MUM in 2003 and completed a BS in mathematics, receiving the Outstanding Student Award in mathematics. Then he went on to earn an MA in computer science.

''While at MUM, I saw a correlation between the regular practice of Transcendental Meditation and my general happiness,'' said Tristan. ''TM has really helped me with my focus and mathematical reasoning ability while I was learning complexity science.''
