About
I am a PhD student at UC Davis in the math department and the applied math graduate group.
I am currently the president of UCD's student chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).
Research
Broadly, I study mathematical biology. I'm currently working on models for neurohormonal regulation in the heart.
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!
