BIOL 398.03 / MATH 388

• Loyola Marymount University
• Los Angeles, CA, USA

Elizabeth Polidan Home

## Education

• 2015, BS, Biomathematics, Loyola Marymount University

## Course work

• Biochemistry & Cell Physiology
• Conservation Biology Seminar
• Principles of Evolution
• Probability & Statistics
• Biomathematical Modeling (current)
• Biomathematics Research
• Data Structures
• Unix and shell programming
• C Programming

## Research interests

1. Stochastic modeling
2. Agent-based modeling
3. Energy budgets

I have been working with Professor Fitzpatrick on a model of the energy budget of a spider.

## My Interests in Biology and Mathematics

• My favorite aspect of biology is the fact that everything is connected and inter-dependent. I love the complexity.
• My favorite aspect of mathematics is that you can use it as a tool to understand the world, from ecosystems to social interactions to physics.

## Career Interests

Work somewhere to apply my analytical skills to a variety of problems.

## Concerns and Information of Note

1. My one concern is that I had cell biology and biochemistry a loooong time ago. I hope that does not affect my ability to understand the biology content.
2. I do not know of anything else I would like the instructors to know. Except, perhaps, that I'm excited about this course!
