Graduate student

I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington for my B.S. in Applied Mathematics, and I was accepted into the accelerated 5-year Master’s program at UNCW during my junior year of my undergraduate career. I finished my M.S. in Mathematics in July of 2014, and continued on to take course work in statistics, biology, and chemistry directly following. I finished my Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Applied Statistics in May of 2015, and accepted NCSU’s acceptance offer for the Biomathematics Ph.D program on the NSF’s Research Training Grant.

Undergraduate research assistant

I am pursuing a B.S. in Mathematics with a minor in Biology at North Carolina State University. I am interested in applying mathematical models to biological systems, particularly those involving epidemiology. I have worked on modeling environmental toxins throughout the human body and modeling granuloma formation in Mycobacterium subspecies paratuberculosis. I am currently working on the C. difficile modeling project with Dr. Lanzas.
