As an applied mathematician working in the field of mathematical biology, my goal as a researcher is to investigate important questions from complex biological systems using mathematical and computational models. Modeling can provide valuable insights when traditional experiments are either too expensive, or impossible. The main focus of my research has been using mechanical models of microorganisms to study their coordinated behavior and interactions with their environment. These models often require a wide variety of mathematics, in particular partial differential equations and numerical analysis.
