Research interests

I am interested in 

  • applications of mathematics to biology: from immunology, cancer research, drug metabolism, developmental cell biology, to animal ecology and epidemiology
  • computational approaches to approximate solutions of local/nonlocal PDEs and ODEs
  • bifurcation analysis of spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal patterns displayed by various mathematical models
