About

I am a doctoral candidate at Brown University in the Division of Applied Mathematics. My primary research interests include mathematical biology, data science, and dynamical systems.

My adviser is Bjorn Sandstede. I collaborate with Ritambhara Singh and have projects with the QSIDE Institute. I am a recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship as well as Brown University's Presidential Fellowship. Prior to coming to Brown University, I received my B.A. in Mathematics from The College of New Jersey, where I was advised by Jana Gevertz and Michael Ochs.

Currently, I serve as Vice President for the Brown University Student Chapter of SIAM, and I co-run the local Brown Math Contest for Modeling. I am also an organizer of the Rose Whelan Society and conduct math outreach through the Math CoOp at Brown, Brown University Math Circle, and GirlsGetMath@ICERM.
