Have fun and ask lots of questions.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I teach classes about how to use mathematics to understand biology. I also train graduate students how to do research in mathematical biology.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I always liked math and biology. I studied math and then learned how to do research in biology.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

I wish I had known that I would be able to publish research on my own and find a position at a university that I love.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I look forward to working with students every day. It is very rewarding. I love encouraging them to ask science questions and showing them how to use math to answer them.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Have fun and ask lots of questions.
