For first-time set up of Octave, here is some helpful literature. Although it is specific to Windows OS, the same tips work with Mac OS using an application like TextEdit. After you have created a folder named "mfiles" in your Octave directory, and after you save your m-file on TextEdit, your file will be renamed name.m.rtf. Go back into the mfiles folder and manually delete the extension .rtf.
My research interests lie at the intersection of harmonic analysis, mathematical physics and PDE. I am currently studying the Benjamin-Ono equation in weighted Sobolev spaces.
Here is my vitae.

This work was presented at the Joint Math Meetings in Baltimore, MD for the Association for Women in Math (AWM ) Workshops. Here is a copy of my poster. Many asked for the template I used to design the poster; find it here.
I love traveling. My
experiences in academics have fostered
my love for traveling. Below you can see the
Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil. I visited this location while participating in an
International Research Experience for Students hosted by the
Department of Mathematics at California State University,
Northridge and the University of Sao Paolo, Sao Carlos.
The experience involved creating teams of
US and Brazilian students working together
on a project. I worked on Numerical Simulations of Potential Fluid
Flow using the Finite Element
Method. A copy of the manuscript our team
(the FEM team)
produced can be found
here. The results were selected to be
presented in the 26th International
Mathematics Colloquium in IMPA, the
Institute of Mathematics, Pure and Applied
in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, pictured below.
When I returned to the US, I had the
opportunity to share my team's finding at
the NSF GK-12 Annual Poster
Presentation in Washington D.C. Below is a picture of part of
the FEM team from Brazil presenting the poster.
I wouldn't mind having a cup of coffee at cafe du monde in New Orleans during a JMM.
The picture below depicts one of the most
peaceful places I have traveled to. I
jokingly describe it as place where
mathematicians may "rest in peace." This is
the lagoon at IAS, the Institute of Advanced
Study in Princeton, NJ.
As I mentioned above, I participated in the
NSF GK-12 Program, called
FERMAT, at Cal State Northridge,
department of mathematics. Below is a
picture of one of my first middle school
One of the fun activities I got to do while participating in the
FERMAT program was create fun math
props. Below is a prototype for an "X-box."
Inside the "X-box" we locked a secret. We posed
postal analogy for delivering
a secret through the mail and watched middle
school students cleverly figure out how to
use two locks and two keys to transport one
message throught the "X-box." In case you
are wondering, the secret was (is) math is
I obtained my Ph.D. from the department of mathematics
at the University of California, Santa
Barbara. I miss the views.
