Mathematical Biology Research Group

The mathematical biology group meets on a weekly basis to share and discuss current mathematical biology research at UC Merced. We use mathematical modeling and computational simulation to explore a variety of biological processes including, but not limited to, protein aggregation, population genetics & structural variation, and biofluid dynamics of marine animals.

Our group is led by Professors Suzanne Sindi (ssindi@ucmerced.edu) and Shilpa Khatri (skhatri3@ucmerced.edu) and consists of graduate students, postdocs and faculty in the Applied Mathematics Department and works in collaboration with several experimentalists at UC Merced and other institutions.

Group Meeting is Held on Wednesdays 3:30-4:30 in Willow Room (COB1-322)
