My name is Mary Vaughan, and I am currently a fifth year Ph.D. candidate at Iowa State University working under the direction of Pablo Raúl Stinga.

Mathematically, I am interested in harmonic analysis and partial differential equations. In particular, I study regularity estimates of fractional and nonlocal equations, functional spaces, and materials modeling with nonlocal operators.

I received my bachelor's degree in mathematics with a minor in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. When I am not working on mathematics, I enjoy climbing, hiking, baking, and traveling with my family.

The Dreams

In the broad light of day mathematicians check their equations and their proofs leaving no stone unturned in their search for rigor.
But, at night, under the full moon, they dream, they float among the stars and wonder at the miracles of the heavens.
They are inspired. Without dreams there is no art, no mathematics, no life.
