Good question.


But before answering your question, I would like to ask you a question, which field or work is not restrcvited to a confined space, or which can happen in an open space.

Whether we talk of a doctor, or an engineer or a Financial person or banker, all of them are mostly in their cubicles.
Yes, they do interact with their colleagues and have refreshing times too, but when working they are confined to their cubicles.

So nothing is different for a mathematician. And since your job is purely a research job, basically analysis, profitability,permutation and combinations and data analyzing so as to forecast future possibilities, you would be more confined to your cubicles.

As you know your job is highly analytic, so noises cannot and should not disturb you. But do not worry, even if there are cubicles, Research does not happen single handedly, you definitely would have a team and interaction is a must.

Also during breaks, you would interact with others in your office, but coming again, when you are your work, you would be restricted to your own desk.

As a Mathematician, if you are not a Research person and are looking out for spacing, then Teaching is the next best option. You could get into research or a P. Hd program as well as teach in colleges. So half your day is spent with students and other professor, so making you interactive and the other half you could dedicate it to your research program.

Choice is yours.
Wish you all the very best....
