I am interested in using mathematics to model biochemical systems. A realistic biochemical system involves many chemical species, interacting in complex ways with many unknowns: unknown rate functions, unknown pathways and types of interactions, etc. This makes solving for the explicit dynamics of chemical concentrations difficult. The goal is to deduce properties of the system using information that is easier to obtain. For example, it is known that some system has a unique stable steady state (chemical equilibrium) based on the connectivity and stoichiometry of the underlying reaction network. For a more detailed description, read more about it here.
Prior to coming to Madison, I was a master student at the
University of Waterloo
under the supervision of
Laurent Marcoux. My time as an undergraduate at the University of British Columbia was split between the
Department of Mathematics
Department of Chemistry.
Here is my CV.
