Rachel L. Thomas, Graduate Student
I am highly interested in math modeling, stochastic processes, and stochastic differential equations. I completed my PhD in spring 2010, and I now work at Exelon on models predicting energy usage and pricing. Previously, I developed models to evaluate the costeffectiveness of HIV treatments and to explore the medical importance of cell metabolism. I'm also interested in theoretical results regarding networks with random input and multiple time scales.
