Graduate Student

Olivia is a PhD student in Quantitative and Computational Biology.  She is broadly interested in how we can use evolutionary game theoretic models to study and understand groups of human populations, particularly in the context of cooperation.  Prior to coming to Princeton, Olivia received her B.A. in Mathematics with highest honors from NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.  While there, she combined her interests in biology with her training in mathematics to create an automatic system of analysis for Euglena metaboly, which is characterized by wave-like deformations of the protist’s contour.
