Since she was 11 years old, Alex James knew she wanted to be a mathematician. There was only one problem...her teacher told her she couldn't be one because there was no such thing as mathematicians! Fortunately she found out differently and has gone on to explore mathematical modelling, applying it to ecological studies.
