BS Physics and Mathematics, Virginia Tech. MS Mathematics, Virginia Tech. PhD Physics, Cornell University.
I mentor Ph.D. students in the Applied Science Department and undergraduate research students on a variety of mathematical biology projects. Prospective graduate students are encouraged to contact me before applying so that we can be on the lookout for your application. Undergraduates interested in summer research should ideally contact me by mid-February to allow time to develop a project before summer fellowship and summer housing deadlines. However, students may inquire about undergraduate research opportunities at any time.
My teaching includes courses on Population Dynamics (ASPC 455/755) and Random Walks in Biology (APSC 456). I am also a member of William and Mary's Biomathematics Initiative.
