Dr. Pearson joined the AMS department in Fall 2012 asassistant professor. In 2009, she completed her Ph.D. in mathematics at Rensselaer Polytechinc Institute (USA) with a dissertation entitled: “Discrete and Continuous Stochastic Models for Neuromorphological Data”.
Following her studies, she spent one year at New York University School of Medicine as a postdoc in the department of theoretical immunology analyzing the immune systems response to simulated viral infections in mice. In the Fall of 2010, Dr. Pearson left her position at NYU to pursue a two year postdoctoral position at the University of Maryland College park in the department of Biology to work on developing theoretical models for applications in comparative phylogenetics.
