Short bio: 

Professor Jackson is a co-organizer of the University’s Mathematical Biology Research Group and is a member of the Society for Mathematical Biology and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. She received her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Washington in 1998.

Research summary: 

Trachette Jackson’s research falls in the area of Systemic Modeling and Systems Biology. She is interested in the application of mathematics to tumor biology, chemotherapeutic strategies, and cell signaling, and Dr. Jackson's research combines this mathematical modeling, numerical simulations, and in vivo experiments to gain deeper understandings of tumor growth and vascular development at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels.
