Research Interests
Mathematical modeling of biological and epidemiological systems, mathematical modeling of feedbacks between disease and income and dynamical systems
Mathematical modeling of biological/epidemiological systems (applying deterministic, stochastic, network, and agentbased modeling techniques to investigate the dynamics of infectious diseases and other biological and epidemiological processes.)
Mathematical modeling of feedbacks between disease and income (applying mathematical, statistical and computational techniques to model the interplay between disease and income and to determine optimal economic development and health intervention measures)
Dynamical Systems (applying the theory of dynamical systems, applied nonlinear analysis, and numerical methods to study extreme multistability involving the coexistence of an infinite number of attractors in coupled biological, chemical and physical systems.)
Current research topic: Modeling the immunological hostpathogen interaction of Johne's disease to understand its pathology and treatment.
