Anna C. Nelson

William W. Elliott Assistant Research Professor


My field of research is mathematical biology, and I am primarily interested in simulating, modeling, and analyzing aggregation and polymerization processes in cellular physiology. My research interests include dynamical systems, mathematical modeling, and stochastic processes. Since Fall 2021, I am a William W. Elliott Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Duke University, where I am working with Veronica Ciocanel.

Prior to Duke, I completed my Ph.D. in mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah under the supervision of Aaron L. Fogelson.

Outside of mathematics, I enjoy disc golf, hiking, baking, traveling, and playing/directing handbells.
