Dr. Bhaven Mistry joined Claremont McKenna College after receiving his Ph.D. in Biomathematics from UCLA. There he researched HIV viral dynamics, the physics of biological assays, and statistical mechanics of molecular evolution. Prior to his doctoral work, he received an M.S. in Electrical Engineering and M.S. in Mathematics from Cal State University Northridge where he pursued research in machine learning and emergent behaviors of biological swarms.

Dr. Mistry is also involved in novel approaches to mathematical education for undergraduate students, particularly those with a non-STEM emphasis. His developed techniques include combining higher mathematical concepts with hands-on labs and creative writing assignments to make math more accessible.
