Veronica Ciocanel

Post Doctoral Researcher, Mathematical Biosciences Institute

Veronica is a President’s Postdoctoral Scholar 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 in dynamical systems and stochastic processes to tackle problems in developmental and cell biology. As a result, she has collaborations with faculty in Mathematics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Neuroscience, Physiology and Medicine at various institutions. She is currently mentoring an undergraduate student in mathematical modeling and cell biology research through the Destination Ohio State University Bridge Program. Besides research, Veronica has founded a local mathematical contest for modeling (MCM) for OSU undergraduate students where teams of students work on real-world inspired problems in teams and compete to represent OSU at the international version of the contest. She is also interested in using active learning in teaching applied mathematics courses and about engaging in outreach with diverse students.
