About Me

The powerful and elegant ways in which mathematics can help us understand biological, physical, and social systems amazes me.  As an applied mathematician, I value collaborations and problems that are engaging across multiple disciplines, and draw on a variety of mathematical methods.  In my research, I work to model, analyze, and understand the dynamics of the brain, with a special focus on auditory neuroscience and the perception of sound.  I gained expertise in these fields as a PhD student at the University of Washington (advisor: Eric Shea-Brown) and as a postdoctoral fellow at New York University (mentor: John Rinzel).  Early experiences that started me on my path include undergraduate study at Pomona College, a year spent studying mathematics at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, and work as a Research Assistant at the Urban Institute in Washington, DC.
