I’m an applied mathematician whose research focuses on modeling complex biological systems. My primary work is investigating problems at the intersection of mathematics, biology and chemistry. Before coming to Beloit College, my work focused on modeling the base of freshwater ecosystems. This work included studies on bacteria-virus dynamics and phytoplankton layering phenomena.

Currently, I’m working in computational neuroscience and developing new models of deep brain stimulation (DBS) which can be used in treating Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders.

I’m an active member in the Math Circle community, which is dedicated to building, connecting, and supporting local communities focused on the enjoyment of mathematics. Math Circles are powerful bridges among K-12 schools, higher education institutions, out-of-school programs, and families.
