Sherli Koshy-Chenthittayil, University of Connecticut, Mathematical modeling in biological scenarios
April 4, 2019 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
My research has been in two broad areas namely mathematical biology and disability studies. This talk will touch upon three of my projects in mathematical biology and one project in disability studies. The mathematical biology section will cover the work I have done in investigating permanence (species in a system are at a safe threshold from extinction) in chaotic systems, establishing a dynamic Boolean model for fMRI (functional MRI) data and designing an agent-based model for multi-species biofilms (species are the bacteria lactobacillus, streptococcus and the fungus Candida albicans). The disability studies research will be about access and equity for students with disabilities to STEM.
