Interests: Data science; nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation; mathematical modeling; mathematical biology; applied computational topology; educational psychology and learning science; technology; diversity
News: I'm delighted to be giving the public lecture at the 2017 Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society annual meeting. See you in Halifax in July!
Diversity: To help our field be its best, we must increase the participation of women and minorities in all aspects of the mathematical sciences. I've launched the Grant Mentoring Diversity Initiative to try to increase the pool of underrepresented groups who apply to NSF-DMS for funding.
