ABOUT ME

Biography

My research covers mathematical modelling of infectious diseases and the complex dynamical systems of their interaction in vivo with the immune system, as well as the epidemiology of their spread through communities. I collaborate with biomedical groups in Australia and overseas, particularly related to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV).
