Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
We work on mathematical and computational models of biological processes, with the following focus: 1) Dynamics of virus infections and the immune system, 2) Dynamics of cancer and its treatment, 3) General evolutionary dynamics and population dynamics. The common theme among these diverse topics is population dynamics as well as ecological and evolutionary theory. A lot of the work is biomedical in nature and thus related to systems biology, where we model the dynamics of cells, pathogens, and molecules. This has many practical applications such as the analysis and development of treatments against infectious diseases and cancer. We collaborate with several experimental laboratories in order to couple computational work with data.
