Summary: Mathematics and biology have been intertwined for some time, but the synergy between the disciplines is on the rise. Mathematics can serve as a type of microscope, letting biologists peer into systems in a whole new way. Just as the microscope revolutionized science in the late 17th century, math can reveal otherwise unseen trends or patterns in data. Dr. Bori Mazzag is a professor of mathematics who directs her quantitative skills to biological problems. The author had the pleasure of interviewing her.
