I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Houston collaborating with Professors Kresimir Josic, Matthew Bennett, and Will Ott. I obtained my Ph. D. in Mathematics from the University of Utah under the supervision of Professor Paul Bressloff in 2017. Prior to that, I recieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Oklahoma in 2012.

I am interested in a number of topics in applied mathematics. Most of these involve applications of the theory of dynamical systems, partial and stochastic differential equations, and nonequilibrium statistical physics to problems in cell biology, systems biology, synthetic biology, physical biochemistry, biophysics, and decision making. Here are a few of the projects on which I am currently working:

- Developing mathematical models of synthetic gene circuits
- Developing mathematical models of emergent properties in bacterial consortia
- Evidence accumulation and decision making in networks
- Shear-induced chaos in glucose-insulin dynamics
- Developing mathematical models of axonal length sensing
