I have several fields of research interests: Neurological Modeling, Sleep, general Mathematical Modeling and Mathematics Education.

I am currently developing a mathematical model of electrical and chemical activity produced by neurons that govern human sleep wake cycles.

In general, I enjoy determining the way things work.

My colleague, Katie Newhall, and I run the Math Modeling Undergraduate Discussion group. This sprouted from our years of supervising practice sessions for the Mathematical Contest in Modeling.
