Thank you for visiting my website! I am a Ph.D. candidate in
Applied and Computational Mathematics at Princeton University, where I am fortunate to be advised by
Naomi Leonard, and
Corina Tarnita. Born in Japan, I grew up in Tokyo, went to high school just outside of NYC and in northeast Italy, and completed my undergraduate degree at Yale University.
As a mathematical biologist and an applied mathematician, I use tools from evolutionary game theory, dynamical systems, and network science to explore mathematical and computational models of collective and emergent behavior in social systems.
I am especially interested in understanding how inter-individual differences and population structures influence and are influenced by collective dynamics.
recent and current projects have focused on self-organized division of labor in ant colonies, hierarchies in adaptive networks, and cooperation and polarization in group-structured populations, among others.
teacher, I strive to practice inclusive teaching in undergraduate classrooms.
I am a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the
McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, and I also serve as a Resident Graduate Student in
First College, one of the undergraduate residential colleges at Princeton.
As a member of the
Princeton Women in STEM Leadership Council (WSTEM), I work with campus partners to foster conversations about diversity and inclusion in STEM at Princeton.
