Course work

  • Biochemistry & Cell Physiology
  • Conservation Biology Seminar
  • Principles of Evolution
  • Probability & Statistics
  • Biomathematical Modeling (current)
  • Biomathematics Research
  • Data Structures

  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.
  1. I do not know of anything else I would like the instructors to know. Except, perhaps, that I'm excited about this course!
