Anna C Nelson, William W Elliott Assistant Research Professor
My field of research is mathematical biology, and I am primarily interested in questions related to aggregation in cellular physiology. In my research, I use computational tools, mathematical modeling, and analysis to gain insight on questions related to polymer formation in blood clotting and microtubule assembly in neurons.
