I am a fourth year PhD student in the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University working with Professor Anastasios Matzavinos. My research involves uncertainty quantification of biolocial models. Specifically, we study blood flow, epidemic spread, and mesoscopic biological tissue and parameter estimation of these models.
