Mathematical Biology

Mathematical Modeling, Epidemiology, Immunology, and Population Dynamics


I am working with talented undergraduates interested in modeling biological phenomenon including:

Tumor immunotherapy
Population dynamics and movement of an endangered bird
Wildlife populations and disease ecology
Forest ecology and tree physiology
Signal processing

In the past

I studied the dynamics of Sin Nombre virus (SNV) infections in deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus) with M. Denise Dearing and Frederick R. Adler at the University of Utah. I joined a field project led by Denise and participated in field work - handling small mammals of Utah’s west desert, recording demographic information and sampling species of interest for antibodies against SNV. I worked on mathematical models and analyses of field data with Fred.

I have also studied epidemiology in host populations structured by age, infection-age, or other epidemiologically relevant internal characteristics.

I am interested in using field, laboratory, or clinical data to parameterize dynamical mathematical models.
