Principal Investigator

Dr. Emilie Purvine completed her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rutgers University, New Jersey, in May of 2011. Her thesis research investigated properties of non-linear (specifically rational) difference equations. She also focused on graph theory in her course work and qualifying exams. After graduate school Emilie joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as a postdoctoral research associate working on semantic knowledge systems and graph theory. She became a full-time employee in November of 2012 and continues to work on graph theory and discrete math applied to cyber security and the power grid. Recently Emilie has also begun work on methods from algebraic topology applied to information integration and evolution of cyber systems.
