My primary research interest is mathematical modeling in biology. In particular, the formulation and analysis of deterministic and stochastic models in describing population and epidemic dynamics. These models may involve difference equations, ordinary differential equations, discrete-time or continuous-time Markov chains, branching processes, or stochastic differential equations. My primary teaching interests are related to applied mathematics. I particularly enjoy teaching Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, and Mathematical Biology.
