Galileo Galilei wrote that mathematics is the language by which we can come to understand the universe. Throughout the history of science, math has been intimately involved with the physical sciences, but as we continue to unravel the mysteries of the universe we have come to appreciate the rich dialogue that can exist between math and biology. My research interests lie at the intersection of these two fields. I am broadly interested in building mathematical models to better understand complex biological systems. In particular, I look for the strategies or rules that guide animal behavior during predator-prey interactions.
