Explorations in Mathematical Modeling and Biofluids

July 20 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Speaker: Lisa Fauci, Professor of Mathematics, Tulane University

Abstract: In the past decade, the study of the fluid dynamics of swimming organisms has flourished. My research has been centered on answering questions about biophysics using computational models of fluid flow: How do mammalian sperm penetrate the outer layer of an egg for successful fertilization?  How can a swimming fish give us insight into recovery from spinal cord injuries? I will give a broad overview of a couple of these projects and discuss recent successes and challenges.
The seminar will be in person but will also be broadcast on zoom via the following link: https://zoom.us/j/98644850395
