Title: Adventures in Mathematical Biology
Abstract: Mathematical Biology refers to the application of mathematics, statistics, computer science and other quantitative methods to answer questions in biology. In this talk, I will first share a little about my journey to becoming a mathematical biologist. Then, I will introduce the methods I use in my research by leading the audience through the development of a model we will use to answer questions about tumor growth. Lastly, I will talk specifically about my current research areas including prion disease, stem cells in plants, blood vessel development, and social justice.
