Educational Background

PhD, Mathematics, Arizona State University, 2004
q-Hausdorff summability

Biography

I was born in Ecuador. Moved to the US in 1999 to pursue grad studies at Arizona State University. I did a postdoc in Mathbio before moving to University of Puerto Rico in 2007, then moved to Universidad San Francisco de Quito in 2011. Finally, I moved to Utah State in the Fall of 2012.


Research Interests

Applied mathematics: mathematical ecology, theoretical epidemiology. Math education.

Awards
