Research
I am interested in the application of techniques from dynamical systems, asymptotic analysis, and stochastic differential equations to various questions in neuroscience ranging from exploring single neuron electrophysiology to examining aspects of cognition and behavior. Read More

 MBI Summer REU Two Week Course 2013 (The Ohio State University)
 I worked with a small group of students for two weeks to go over the results in the paper Dynamics of spiking neurons connected by both inhibitory and electrical coupling by Lewis and Rinzel (2003). Their writeup includes a reproduction of a few key results as well as a small extension to explore the effects of heterogeneity.

 Collaborative Learning at the Interface of Mathematics and Biology
 I worked with several scholarship undergraduate students on a year long program where they learned the foundations of mathematical biology research.
 Our work together lead to the publication of an article in the Journal of Theoretical Biology.
