Vanessa Rivera Quinones
I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Mathematics and a Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellow, who enjoys teaching, learning applications of math in different disciplines, and making math accessible to everyone.
- Mathematical Biology
- Applied Mathematics
My main research interests include adaptive dynamics, mathematical modeling and ordinary and partial differential equations which I study under the advisory of Professor Zoi Rapi. In particular, I study how we can use mathematical models to understand how interactions among hosts, parasites, and the environment shape the spread of disease.
