Office Hours: 

T: 9:00 – 10:00, W 2:30 – 3:30 PM; or by appointment

I am a William W. Elliott Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Duke University.  I received my Ph.D. in Biomathematics at Florida State University under the advice of Dr. Harsh Jain. My primary research focus is mathematical oncology. I am interested in utilizing mathematical modeling to gain mechanistic insight into cancer initiation, development, and treatment. To this end, I have worked on a wide variety of mathematical models that aim to help advance towards personalized treatment of cancer patients. I wrote my dissertation on the development and optimization of the treatment of primary brain tumors.
