Welcome! I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Ohio State University. My primary research area is in modeling infectious disease dynamics, with a particular emphasis on waterborne diseases. Much of my recent work concerns cholera dynamics. I am also interested in neuroscience, and parameter estimation for differential equations.
I am teaching math 1157 in Spring 2013. Some courses I have taught previously are listed below:
Post-docs interested in working with me are encouraged to apply for the three year postdoctoral fellowships at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) here at Ohio State.
Interested graduate students can apply to either the math department's Ph.D. program or the Master's program in mathematical biology. I currently have an opening for a PhD student as part of a NSF grant on modeling cholera dynamics. An overview of all graduate programs in the department can be found here.
Undergraduates at OSU can pursue research in mathematical biology through the RUMBA program. MBI also holds an annual summer program on mathematical biology for undergraduates. This latter program is open to undergraduates outside of Ohio State as well.
