Katie Newhall is an associate professor of mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).  Through stochastic modeling, analysis, and simulation, she seeks to understand large-scale and long-time dynamics of physical and biological systems.  This work aims to help explain experimentally observable phenomena by exposing their underlying mechanisms or mathematical structures. Newhall received her Ph.D. in mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York, and spent three years as a Courant Instructor at New York University before arriving at UNC.


Distinguishing Noise Sources with Information Theory

Mutual information provides a promising method for disentangling intrinsic from extrinsic sources of noise in biological systems. Read More »
