November 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Bio: Dr. Matrajt is an applied mathematician passionate about utilizing quantitative tools (mathematical and computer models, statistics, optimization theory) to understand complex biological processes. Her research lies at the interface of applied mathematics, biology and public health policy. Dr. Matrajt uses a wide range of tools from applied mathematics including dynamical systems, differential equations, stochastic processes, operations research and optimization theory to forward our understanding of infectious disease dynamics.
Dr. Matrajt was born and raised in Mexico City, Mexico. She attended UNAM, where she studied Mathematics as an undergraduate. Dr. Matrajt moved to Seattle, WA, where she completed a PhD in the Applied Mathematics Department at the University of Washington, where she graduated in 2011.
