Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Rodriguez focuses on studying nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), in particular those with applications to urban crime, segregation, biological aggregation, chemotaxis, and ecology. Fundamentally, she is interested in mathematical modeling and the use of numerical and mathematical analysis to shed light into social, biological and ecological systems.
