| Diego Chowell
received his B.S. in Mathematics from University of Colima, in Mexico,
in 2009. In 2010, he obtained a Masters Degree in Numerical
Bifurcation Analysis of Dynamical Systems from the Mathematical
Research Institute, at Utrecht University, in the Netherlands.
Afterwards, he returned to Mexico where he worked in academia teaching
mathematics, statistics, and operations research. He is currently a
graduate student in the program of Applied Mathematics for the Life and
Social Sciences at Arizona State University, where he is a graduate
research assistant at the Mathematical, Computational and Modeling
Sciences Center and the Biodesign Institute, in the Center for
several summers, Mr. Chowell has served as a research assistant and
mentor in the Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute. In the
2013 Spring Semester, he was a visiting graduate student in the
Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at Massachusetts
Institute of Technology (MIT).
research interests are interdisciplinary and lie at the intersection of
mathematical, statistical and computational modeling, evolutionary
biology, and cancer. He is especially interested in problems that are
medically relevant in the field of cancer.
