My name is Meg Hudock. I attended the University of Scranton for my undergraduate education and obtained my bachelor’s degree in mathematics. I graduated as a member of the honors program, where I was able to complete an undergraduate thesis. My thesis was titled A Mathematical Model of Mechanical Destruction to the Articular Cartilage of the Knee Joint. I completed this project with the help of my professor and mentor, Dr. Jason Graham. Our project focuses on examining the immediate effects of impact injuries to the main biological structures of the articular cartilage in the knee, as well as treatments for these injuries that may be more effective than the typical course of treatment.
I am also a member of Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society and Alpha Sigma Nu National Jesuit Honor Society, and I was the president of the Mathematics Club at Scranton during my senior year. My research interests lie in mathematical biology. I hope to work in this area and utilize topics in real analysis and differential equations. Outside of my studies inmathematics, I enjoy running every day, playing tennis and volleyball, dancing, and reading.
