Disease Modeling Lab

The primary research focus of our lab is theoretical, statistical and computational approaches to understanding the evolution and spread of infectious diseases. This includes:

* Stochastic and deterministic dynamical models

* Bio-informatics and genomic analysis

* Epidemiology and statistics

I arrived in Fall 2007, and am building a research group. I am interested in working with students and post-docs who are strongly motivated to study disease evolution and spread, whether in the field, the clinic, or the laboratory, or by analyzing existing public-health or genomic data, or using mathematical approaches to ask currently relevant questions. This would include students from biology, mathematics, computer science, and clinical epidemiology, among other fields.
