Gaoyang Bridget Fan

PhD Candidate • Department of Mathematics • University of Utah

I am a 5th year graduate student working on Mathematical Biology, with a focus on Biophysics and Stochastics Processes, advised by Paul Bressloff. I am particularly interested in dynamical systems on networks with applications to biological systems and social networks.

Bacterial Quorum Sensing

How do bacteria 'talk' with each other? Understanding bacterial quorum sensing through mathematical modeling.

Noise-induced Network Synchronization

The effect of noisy communication/interaction in biological or social networks.

Phase Plane Approach to SDEs with State-dependent Noise

Visualization of special stochatistic systems using classic dynamical tools.
