About Me

I am a PhD student in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. Before starting this program, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, with minors in Chemistry and Computer Science, from the University of Pittsburgh. While there, I researched the effects of interferons on an inner host ODE model of Influenza A. I reduced high dimension problems down to two dimensions to be able to use phase plane analysis. I also used bifurcation analysis to study various system's behavior under perturbations. This research was done under the guidance of Dr. David Swigon and Dr. Bard Ermentrout. Currently, I am the President of the SIAM Student Chapter and run the Undergraduate Mathematics Research Seminar at the University of Minnesota . Outside of academics, I enjoy traveling, cooking, reading, and dancing.
