I am currently a doctoral student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Vermont. I have passed the doctoral level qualifying exams in Complex Analysis, Real Analysis and Algebra. My research revolves around complex systems, asynchronous and synchronous text based communication, and the impact of missing data on inferred network topology. I am also interested in spatio-temporal dynamics in ecosystems.
After graduating from the University of Vermont with a M.S. in Mathematics, I traveled overseas to teach Mathematics for five years. I then earned a M.A. in Marine Affairs and Policy from the University of Miami. My past work has focused broadly on human-environmental coupled systems, with specific projects in fisheries socioeconomics, environmental education, and sustainability. Prior to returning to UVM, I was in Costa Rica working with sea turtles and teaching undergraduate mathematics courses (online). Upon my return to UVM in 2009, I was delighted to have been awarded a Complex Systems Graduate Research Assistantship (2009-2011) and a Graduate Research Fellowship from UVM (working with Peter Dodds and Chris Danforth)
I'm delighted to be back at UVM and to be a part of the exciting work in the Department of Mathematics and Center for Complex Systems!
