Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests:

My research interests include deterministic and stochastic mathematical modeling along with the associated mathematical techniques for such modeling including numerical methods, numerical linear algebra, inverse problems, uncertainty quantification, differential equations, and partial differential equations. Current and/or recent projects include the modeling the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria in a hospital, the spread of plant disease on Roan Mountain and the effect of body mass index on the absorption of antibiotics in the body. Other research involves stochastic modeling of the movement of a subsocial spider during prey capture and the development of statistical tools for spatial point analysis.
