# Margaret Trautner

PhD student at Caltech

I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Computing + Mathematical Sciences at Caltech. My research interests lie at the intersection of computational science and applied mathematics. In particular, I've been doing research on the theory of opinion dynamics. In Summer 2021, I will be working at Sandia National Labs researching quantum inference algorithms. At Caltech, I work in the group of Professor Andrew Stuart.

I am a recipient of the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship. I received my SB degree from MIT in Mathematics with minors in computer science and mechanical engineering in 2020.
