I am entering my senior year at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. My major is Applied Mathematics and I am interested in research involving mathematical modeling, differential equations, optimization, graph theory, and combinatorics. Outside of the classroom, I love to play soccer, go to the beach, ride my long board, and read. I am also a flutist in my home institution’s Symphonic Wind Ensemble. In the future, I plan to obtain a PhD in applied mathematics and become a professor at a four-year university where I can cultivate both my love of teaching and passion for conducting research.
