I’m a PhD candidate in applied mathematics at Northwestern University. I use dynamical systems and other quantitative approaches to study pattern formation in dryland ecology with my advisor Mary Silber.
- 08/2016 - I just returned the 2016 MBL Physiology Course. It was an immense privilege to learn biology from the wonderful people I met there!
- 05/2016 - So proud of the students in my Chicago Scholars cohort, who are going on to great colleges next year!
- 03/2016 - Our paper on the robustness of an important vegetation model prediction is online.
- 11/2015 - It was a pleasure to give a couple of talks about my research to high school students in the Schuler Scholars program.
