Teaching (Fall 2013):
- MATH 353.04, ORD AND PRTL DIFF EQUATIONS
- Physics 047, WF 08:30 AM-09:45 AM
- Research Interests: Mathematical Oncology, Mathematical Biology, Probability, Stochastic Processes
I am the recipient of the 2013 Doctoral Prize of the Canadian Mathematical Society..
Recently in the news: my HPV research.
Currently, I am working on the following topics:
- Intratumor heterogeneity: spatial stochastic modeling
- HPV and cervical cancer: stochastic modeling at tissue-level
- Sexual networks and HPV vaccination: infectious disease dynamics on random dynamic graphs
- Synthetic biology: modeling of synthetically engineered bacterial cultures
- Bone remodeling: stochastic spatial models and evolutionary game theory
