Hi my name is Dr. Talon Johnson and I’m National Science Foundation (NSF) Mathematical and Physical Science (MPS) Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. I recently (2021) received my PhD at the University of Texas at Arlington in mathematics and earned my BSc in mathematics at Morehouse College. I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. Currently I do research in motion based artifact deblurring in MRI. Additionally, I have interest in the field of mathematical biology, specifically in modeling HIV and AIDS dynamics and other immunology models.


What are you most proud of in your work or life?

I think one of the most proudest moment in my life is that I became the first in my family to obtain his Ph.D. and I’m glad I can share that joy with family.

What are your passions and hobbies?

When I’m not working you can find me playing video games, watching some anime or some other shows, running around somewhere, or reading. Currently, learning more about baking.

Do you have a personal motto or other words to live by?

We fear the unknown because we don’t know the possibilities, yet we fear the known because we know the possibilities. Do not let fear limit and constrain you, for you have unlimited realms of possibilities to reach the apex of the mountain you climb.

Favorite snack food?

If I could eat it everyday, it would be cheesecake!
