I was wondering if anyone had any experience transitioning from pure mathematics to applied mathematics? I am currently doing an Msc in pure maths and my background is mainly algebraic. I was wondering if people had any experience or knowledge about transitioning into applied mathematics and how possible this was? (When I talk about applied mathematics, I'm talking about a broad range including statistics and OR.)

In my field, I see quite a few names from mathematics departments in automatic control and signal processing journals. Pick a problem and see if it matches your interest. –  Damien Nov 28 '13 at 22:44
