Personal profile


Prof. Eftimie joined the University of Dundee in 2011 as a Lecturer. She became Senior Lecturer in 2014, Reader in 2017 and Professor (Chair) in 2020. Her research focused on mathematical applications to biology and medicine. Recently she was also involved in COVID-19-related research (one published research article on this topic focused on modelling the spread of COVID-19 across non-COVID hospital bays that host multiple beds). Prof. Eftimie left Dundee in November 2020 to take up a Professor position at the Université de Franche-Comté, in Besançon, France.

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

Research interests

Undertaking research on COVID-19 to address the current coronavirus pandemic.
