I am currently working on an interdisciplinary collaborative project with the Liu Lab at CU, Boulder on collective migration during wound healing.
Collective migration is the coordinated movement of a population of cells, and it is involved in many biological processes. Our collaborators use wound healing as a framework to study collective migration by making a cut in a cell monolayer and observing how the cell sheet moves to fill in this empty wound of space. We use mathematical models to help understand the cellular mechanics underlying collective migration. A recent study has focused on the effects of cell-cell adhesion during this process, and we are now investigating structured population models in wound healing.
I am a TA for APPM 1235 (pre-calc) during the Fall 2016 semester. My office hours are Tuesdays from 1-4 in Fleming 208. The course webpage is here.
