Paige Thibodeaux is a sophomore undergraduate at Louisiana State University majoring in Computational Mathematics with a minor in Philosophy while also concurrently fulfilling premedical requirements. She is currently involved in a research group exploring the topic of Discrete Dynamical Systems and the Generation of Fractals with Dr. Frank Neubrander, and she is part of a group planning an AP Calculus Day at LSU, which is intended to assist area high school AP Calculus students in the preparation for their AP test. She also works as a caregiver for an autistic woman and spends much of her free time searching for area trails to run.
My research endeavors are currently limited to my involved in research with Dr. Neubrander on the topic of Discrete Dynamical Systems and the Generation of Fractals. While I am an undergraduate, I hope to continue to expand my knowledge of the subject of mathematics through involvement in research, especially in topics with potential to broaden my understanding of mathematical biology. My teaching endeavors are similarly limited to my current involvement in a group that is planning an AP Calculus Day for area high school AP Calculus students. I also hope to be involved in tutoring for local public schools in the future as an undergraduate student.
