# Research

The above animation shows the dynamical plane (on the left) for the rational map with n = 4 and d = 3 as the parameter (on the right) begins in the center of a Sierpinski hole, passes through a Mandelbrot set, and ends in the Cantor set locus.

While earning a Masters in Mathematics for Teachers at Western New England College (University now), Thomas Hull was kind enough to let me work on **Flat Vertex Fold Sequences** with him. It is published in Origami 5.

I am currently studying complex dynamics with Bob Devaney. He is awesome. Specifically, we are examining structures in the parameter plane for singularly perturbed complex rational maps.
