 Research Interests: Mathematical Biology, Dynamical Systems and Perturbation Theory
My primary researh interests lie in the application
and analysis of mathematical models in immunology.
I focus on the analysis of the models and what predictions the models can make about the fundamental dynamical properties of the immune response to infection.
A second interest lies in the study of the
mechanochemical equations based on the theory of
elasticity used to study pattern formation.
A third interest lies in the study of perturbation
theory and asymptotics.
