#### Balancing an Academic Career in Mathematics with Motherhood and Life's Other Passions

(2018)

I became a mother while a postdoctoral fellow, and solved my two-body problem shortly thereafter, becoming a tenure-track professor in mathematics and statistics. My plan to have a second child came with an unexpected ...

#### Stochastic shielding and edge importance for Markov chains with timescale separation

(2018)

Nerve cells produce electrical impulses ("spikes") through the coordinated opening and closing of ion channels. Markov processes with voltage-dependent transition rates capture the stochasticity of spike generation at the ...

#### Stochastic shielding and edge importance for Markov chains with timescale separation

(2018)

Nerve cells produce electrical impulses ("spikes") through the coordinated opening and closing of ion channels. Markov processes with voltage-dependent transition rates capture the stochasticity of spike generation at the ...

#### Modeling Financial System with Interbank Flows, Borrowing, and Investing

(2018)

In our model, private actors with interbank cash flows similar to, but more general than that by Carmona et al. (2013) borrow from the non-banking financial sector at a certain interest rate, controlled by the central bank, ...

#### A Single-Subject Method to Detect Pathways Enriched With Alternatively Spliced Genes

(2019)

Participants in White et al.’s (1) study performed a semantic categorization task while viewing pairs of words presented simultaneously to the right and left of fixation. On each trial, participants viewed two briefly ...

#### Probability of ruin in discrete insurance risk model with dependent Pareto claims

(2019)

We present basic properties and discuss potential insurance applications of a new class of probability distributions on positive integers with power law tails. The distributions in this class are zero-inflated discrete ...

#### A note on transportation cost inequalities for diffusions with reflections

(2019)

We prove that reflected Brownian motion with normal reflections in a convex domain satisfies a dimension free Talagrand type transportation cost-information inequality. The result is generalized to other reflected diffusion ...

#### A 3D Numerical Study of Interface Effects Influencing Viscous Gravity Currents in a Parabolic Fissure, with Implications for Modeling with 1D Nonlinear Diffusion Equations

(2019)

Although one-dimensional non-linear diffusion equations are commonly used to model flow dynamics in aquifers and fissures, they disregard multiple effects of real-life flows. Similarity analysis may allow further analytical ...
