Mario BaÑuelos


Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor & Associate Chair of Mathematics at California State University, Fresno. I am from the small, agricultural town of Delano, California and a first-generation college student. I earned my B.A. in Mathematics from California State University, Fresno (Fresno State), and I obtained my Ph.D. in Applied Math from the University of California, Merced under the guidance of my advisor Prof. Suzanne Sindi. My  research group focuses on mathematical biology, optimization, statistical models for genome evolution, and data science. We are committed to bringing more research opportunities to the Central Valley as well as positively impacting the community through culturally-sustaining research and teaching.
