I am an applied mathematics graduate student at the University of California, Davis. I am interested in a range of topics that mostly fall under mathematical biology.
Before I moved to Davis, I went to the University of California, Santa Barbara for my BS in Mathematics. I am originally from Santa Monica, CA. As you can guess, living in California was a huge priority for me when choosing schools.
In my spare time, I like to play sports (especially football and soccer,) videogames, and watch stand-up comedy. Oh, and FLY EAGLES FLY!
My research interests include mathematical biology, mathematical modeling, and dynamical systems, but my main focus lies in Mathematical Neurocardiac Electrophysiology.
My current project uses a mix of numerics, biology, and dynamical systems. I am building a model to characterize certain neuronal behaviour in the Intrinsic Cardiac Nervous System (ICNS) that has been found through experimentation. The g
oal is to reproduce the distribution of firing rates, with possible future work including using this model to predict the ICNS response to differing external inputs.
