The focus of my research is in mathematical and computational biology with particular applications in ecology, infectious diseases, and agriculture through modeling, analysis, and simulations. Depending on the particular application, these can be nonlinear ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, stochastic models or Agent-based models.
