Henry Tullis

Name: Henry Tullis
Major: Mathematics: Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACME)
Graduation: April 2026

Single! Violinist, and fan of *almost* all comida Latina. Served in Orlando, Florida speaking Spanish. A student at heart, loves all things math and science (and can appreciate other subjects too). A passionate math tutor, but tragically had to hang up the blue vest at the end of last semester. Now I am doing more research on emergent biological phenomena, like cell sorting and coordination of the Dictyostelium Discoideum slug (google it!).

What is something you wish everyone knew about your major/field of study?

Math is not just numbers.

All modesty aside, what are you better at than 90% of people?

Eating rice and beans

When you have 30 minutes of free time, what do you do?

Homework, of course!

Why did you decide to join the Honors Program?

I love learning and I wanted to challenge myself and force myself to round out a bit. All of those are currently being accomplished!

What has been your favorite Honors experience?

The Art of Transformative Storytelling was the most impactful class I have taken at BYU. I don't consider myself much of an English enthusiast, but I for sure had some transformative experiences in that class and made memories that will last a lifetime.

What is your next step in Honors?

Haha, finishing my leadership experience! I'm developing course content that will help Biology 130 students to appreciate math and mathematical modeling more in the context of biology! (and no, no prior knowledge required!)
