Veronica Ciocanel

Postdoctoral Fellow, Mathematical Biosciences Institute

Veronica is a postdoctoral fellow at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) at OSU. Following her thesis work in Applied Mathematics at Brown University, her research focuses on using mathematical techniques such as dynamical systems and stochastic processes to tackle problems in cell biology and cardiovascular dynamics. As a result, she has collaborations with faculty in Mathematics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Neuroscience, Physiology and Medicine at various institutions. Besides research, Veronica has founded a local mathematical contest for modeling for undergraduate students where teams of students work on real-world inspired problems in teams over a weekend. In graduate school, she has also been active in leading women in mathematics groups and preparing outreach presentations for high school students. During her postdoc at the MBI, Veronica plans to teach Mathematics courses that introduce students to applications through active learning.
