My primary research interest is mathematical modeling of biological systems. Specifically, the development, analysis, and simulation of deterministic and stochastic models in describing population and epidemic dynamics. The models may involve difference equations, ordinary differential equations, discrete-time or continuous-time Markov chains, branching processes, or stochastic differential equations.
