PhD Candidate in Mathematics, Duke University
B.A. in Mathematics, Pomona College

I am a mathematician interested in mathematical biology and dynamical systems. I am currently working with Dr. Michael Reed on mathematical modeling of circadian rhythms and dopamine, and on modeling sex differences in one-carbon metabolism. I am also interested in bifurcation theory and numerical analysis.

I taught introductory calculus at Duke University for three semesters. I love teaching math, and it's something that I see myself doing long term. Besides research and teaching, I also value community and mentorship. In Spring 2019, I founded the Duke chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).
