About
I am a PhD candidate in the math department and the applied math graduate group.
I'm also a Graduate Writing Fellow for the Writing Across the Curriculum program.
Research
My PhD research is in the application of mathematical models to analyze various facets of cardiac pacemaking, particularly the robustness of synchrony in the sinoatrial node and the kinetics of heart rate modulation by the sympathetic nervous system.
I have also done research in experimental neuroscience (investigating
the mechanism of food and druginduced circadian rhythmic patterns via the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the mouse brain) and in analysis (using variational methods
to study twoparameter eigencurves for the pLaplacian SturmLiouville equation). Contact me for any additional details!
