About Me
My name is Christian Parkinson. I am a fifth year graduate student in the Mathematics department at UCLA specializing in applied mathematics. Currently I am working on a project with Andrea Bertozzi and Stan Osher wherein we are applying level set methods to problems in environmental crime modeling (poaching and deforestation), and optimal path planning. Before coming to UCLA, I received my BS and MS in Computational and Applied Mathematics at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. For my Master's thesis, I studied mathematical modeling of in-host HIV dynamics with spatial aspects under the advice of Steve Pankavich. Since August 2015, I have lived in Los Angeles. My hobbies include books, movies, TV, trivia, retro video games (particularly SNES) and generally staying indoors.
