### About Me

I am an assistant professor of Mathematics at Walla Walla University. I did my graduate work at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, and received a PhD in mathematics in 2014. My dissertation is titled "Dynamic Behaviors of Biological Membranes." Basically, I developed a model describing a membrane as a two phase fluid on a deformable two dimensional surface.

I am an applied mathematician by training, and I love using math as a tool to understand things in the other sciences, especially biology. Even more than that, I love teaching students how to use mathematics in useful and interesting ways. I feel very fortunate to be at Walla Walla University, an institution that places very high emphasis on the quality of instruction.
