Research Interests:
I am interested in the applications of mathematics to biology and especially physiology.  My thesis and current work involves studying uterine contractions taking the structure of the uterine muscle wall into account.
     I have worked on other projects involving the  spreading rates of Myxococcus xanthus, a bacteria, as well as on projects involving action potential propagation and genetic spread in populations.
