  • Title Mathematics & Statistics
  • Education Vanderbilt University, B.A.

Lanlan Liu is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics. Originally from Jiangsu, China, she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics (with minors in German and Computer Science) from Vanderbilt University. At Vanderbilt, she did her undergraduate thesis in number theory, studying the representation of numbers as sums of squares. In the summer of her junior year, she served as a research assistant at the Sobolev Institute of Mathematics to study the semi-supervised classification of hyperspectral images. In her first few summer terms at BU, she was an instructor for calculus and probability courses. Lanlan’s research interests include computational biology and stochastic partial differential equations, and she is currently working on the mean field limit of particular-based stochastic reaction-diffusion models with potentials. At URBAN, Lanlan plans to get involved in research related to epidemiology and fluid dynamics. When she is not buried in mathematical proofs, Lanlan loves shooting instant photos and storing life’s precious moments in albums.
