Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! My name is Krishna, and I'm a junior interested in genetics, evolution, and statistics, and I'm doing research at that intersection. I love learning about any STEM field, and I enjoy communicating the beauty of science. I'm teaching about the quantification of nature because I think quantification adds a level of enchanting complexity to ordinary natural phenomena that you and I might disregard. There's always a fun puzzle hidden in the numbers, and I look forward to exploring some of these with you all!

S4642: Nature to Numbers in Splash Fall 2022 (Oct. 29, 2022)
Leaf patterns, crystal lattices, population sizes, and meandering rivers. What do these, and pretty much everything in nature, have in common? They hide numerical patterns that offer fascinating insights into the workings of the nature. Nature to numbers means quantifying the ordinary objects and baffling behaviors that you and I come upon everyday. I hope to explore how great scientists of the past have recognized these patterns and used them to advance our scientific understanding. Then, we're going to make our own observations on less studied phenomena and see if we can discover any hidden designs in nature.
