I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute in Columbus Ohio. From 2008-2012, I was a graduate student in the UCLA Department of Biomathematics (Department of Mathematical and Computational Biology), an applied
mathematics program with emphasis on biological applications. I work primarily
on inverse problems in statistical physics and imaging. I also work
on modeling of neurophysiology using partial differential equations.
My advisors were Tom Chou,
KC Brennan, and
Van Savage. Additionally, I previously
had completed an MS in Statistics under the tutelage of Rick Schoenberg,
and Jan de Leeuw.
