I am an applied mathematician specializing in the formulation and analysis of differential equations models in biology. I earned my Ph.D in mathematics at UCLA in December of 2018, having studied the dynamics of human T-cell diversity in aging and immune disease.
At Temple, I am working on partial differential equations models of spotted lanternfly population dynamics in the United States. I am particularly interested in using mathematical modeling to predict the likelihood of species establishment under diverse environmental conditions, and to identify optimal implementations of a variety of control measures.
