A native New Yorker, I received my BA in Mathematics from NYU’s Courant Institute. While there, I combined my interests in molecular biology with my training in math to create an automatic system of analysis for Euglena metaboly, which is characterized by wave-like deformations of the protist’s contour.  Currently, I am interested in how we can use evolutionary game theoretic models to study and understand the effects of group population structures on the evolution of various human behaviors.  In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar, cooking, watching NFL football, and karaoke-ing.
