I am an Applied Mathematician working in mathematical biology and have particular interests in the mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, computational epidemiology, dynamical systems, and numerical methods for PDEs.

I believe that epidemic modeling can foster knowledge of the disease transmission dynamics, forecast the spread, and optimize mitigation efforts. For these models to be useful, they must

(1) have a solid mathematical formulation from realistic biology and
(2) be solved accurately using numerical methods.

These two themes are the core of my studies. I develop computational tools that advance the fields in both mathematics and biology.
