Because I will be leaving Northwestern to start a tenure-track position this summer, I am no longer recruiting new students into my research group. See this page for a list of resources on research opportunities at Northwestern.
I will be moving to Purdue this August, and I am looking for graduate students who are interested in applied math. My group works on diverse applications (with a focus on complex biological and social systems) and uses a range of mathematical techniques, including agent-based, continuum, and data-driven modeling, simulations, and analysis. If you are interested in our research or would like to learn more, I encourage you to send me an email -- I am very happy to hear about your interests and chat further over Zoom. More generally, I am looking forward to meeting more of the graduate students in Purdue Mathematics and Purdue Biomedical Engineering -- you are very welcome to drop into my virtual office hours (email me for the Zoom link), whether to chat about research or just say hello.
I actively mentor student research and am looking for driven, team-minded undergraduates who are excited about applied math. My current and past undergraduate group members span multiple majors, including math, computer science, and engineering, and many of them were first-time researchers when they joined my group. If you are a Purdue student interested in my team's research, I encourage you to send me an email -- I am happy to chat over Zoom about projects in math, computer science, data science, or public science with applications to biology or social science. (Composing emails when reaching out to new people is sometimes stressful, and the resources here and here include guidance and example emails for contacting professors about research.) Academic-year opportunities can be for funding (including work study) or course credit (through MA 49000), and funding is available for summer projects. I am looking for students who would like to continue research for at least one semester and the summer.
