I am an NSF Mathematical Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Georgia Tech
in the Weitz Lab
in the School of Biology
. My postdoctoral mentor is
(Biology and Physics). I completed my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at the Center for Applied Mathematics
at Cornell University. My Ph.D. advisor was Stephen Ellner
(Ecology and Evolutionary Biology).
I am a mathematical biologist interested in studying how interactions between evolutionary and plastic adaptation and ecological processes alter the composition and dynamics of natural communities. I am particularly interested in how evolution and plasticity alter the community dynamics of predator-prey and host-pathogen systems. I also study the mathematical properties and phenomena that arise in biologically motivated classes of dynamical systems. This work primarily focuses on fast-slow dynamical systems.
