Research

I work on Mathematical Biology, more specifically on mathematical models for infectious diseases. I am interested in some of the following topics:

  • Modeling human behavior in relation to vaccination
  • HIV infection
  • Heterogeneity in susceptibility to infection
  • Modeling tuberculosis transmission and control
  • Drug resistance
