Caitlin Lienkaemper

Caitlin Lienkaemper graduated from Harvey Mudd College just a week before coming to MPI MiS. She is starting a PhD in math at Pennsylvania State University in the fall.

She is broadly interested in mathematical problems that arise in biological settings. A few of her past and present projects have involved studying intrinsic topological and geometric properties of neural codes, combinatorial descriptions of neural activity, using algebraic tools.

With Nidhi Kaihnsa, she is working on ideas about toric differential inclusions stemming from Gheorghe Craciun’s proposed proof of the global attractor conjecture, a major open problem in mathematical chemistry, with the goal of relating this approach to the study of dynamical systems arising from neural networks.
