Andrea Welsh

I received my Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology in Physics in 2019 where I studied chimera states in an adaptation of the FitzHugh Nagumo model, pattern formation of aggregations of brine shrimp in a shallow suspension, and spiral waves in a living simulation. I am interested in the collective motion of oscillators in biological systems and how the dynamics of individuals constituents make more interesting global patterns. In addition to research, I work on diversity, inclusion, and advocacy in STEM particularly for LGBTQIA+ scientists and scientists with mental health issues.
