As an undergraduate at the University of Evansville, Lori began work on the research project that gave way to her paper. She worked with her advisor, Dr. Erin Bredensteiner, on applying her doctoral research to an area that the university was interested in. Lori's first interest in working on a research project innocently came from the desire to continue her mathematical studies in graduate school. She believed it would be an excellent experience to aid in that end, and it was. She is now attending the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and pursuing a doctorate in applied mathematics. If anyone has any questions about her paper, undergraduate research, or graduate school she would be happy to talk with you.
