Christina Edholm

Welcome to my world, let's go on an adventure!

Fall 2024 Courses

Math 32 - Calculus III

Math 183 - Modeling and Simulation


I am an Assistant Professor at Scripps College in the Mathematics Department, and associated with the Computer Science and Data Science minors.  My pronouns are she/her/hers.

I received my B.A. in Mathematics from Willamette University in Salem Oregon. For graduate school I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I earned my M.S. in Mathematics and Ph.D. in Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Richard Rebarber and Prof. Brigitte Tenhumberg. Afterwards, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with advisor Prof. Suzanne Lenhart.

Research Interests 

I am an applied mathematician who focuses on mathematical biological questions and analysis. Two main areas of my research are invasive species control and epidemiological modeling. The models are formulated using difference equations, ordinary differential equations, continuous time Markov chains, or stochastic differential equations to characterize interactions between populations. I use a variety of different mathematical and computational tools to perform analysis on the models. In most problems I strive to understand the dynamics and gain insight to manage the populations.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

I have attend DEI workshops and I am working on improving the climate and culture of my group, my classes, and the mathematics and biological sciences community. 

This work begins with me and I am acknowledging that I will help make things better moving forward. 

Hold me accountable for doing this work.
