Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Professor of Mathematical Biology
Research: We develop theory in a number of areas in evolutionary biology and epidemiology using a combination of mathematical models and computer simulations. Our goal is to gain a deeper understanding of biological processes ranging from the evolution of social interactions to the evolution of infectious diseases.
Teaching: I teach mathematics courses and quantitative courses in biology. The biological courses are designed to highlight the power and utility of mathematics in the life sciences by illustrating how quantitative reasoning can be used to answer interesting and important questions.
Course topics: Calculus, evolutionary biology, modelling techniques, evolutionary medicine, game theory
