Elizabeth Polidan (an artistic interpretation)

I am in MATH 388. I learned about OpenWetWare from Professor Kam Dahlquist, and I've joined to participate in course work.

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

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.

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.

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