Márcio is interested in understanding how macroscopic behavior arises from simpler multiple interactions over time and space. He's currently investigating biological phenomena, but his long-term goal is to expand his research to biological, social, economical or even political systems. Márcio's work involves a combination of both theoretical and computational models.

Karly's research is focused on modeling infectious diseases on networks. She is interested in how the structure and seasonality of networks affect the invasion and control of disease. Her work includes models for Ebola on a social contact network and waterborne diseases, such as cholera, on community and environmental networks. She incorporates techniques from applied dynamical systems, ordinary differential equations, stochastic processes and graph theory. Karly has also developed novel models for tumor virotherapy and citrus greening disease.

My research is in the area of mathematical analysis of agent-based models (ABMs), particularly in terms of solving optimization problems. I have primarily worked on ABMs of biological systems. I have developed a framework for analysis of ABMs that involves data fitting, statistical validation, optimal control theory for discrete dynamical systems, and a variety of heuristic methods.

Farrah's current research projects involve developing and improv- ing both theoretical and computational models and applying these to problems from biology. More specifically her research has been focused on better understanding the HIV-1 viral capsid structure and assembly using dynamical systems and simulations using numerical methods. She is also immensely interested in other biological mechanisms including, but not limited to, infection, disease, antiviral effects of drug treatments, drug discovery and drug resistance. Farrah is interested in generating conjectures and predictions that can be tested in a laboratory or clinical populations, estimating diffcult to measure dynamic parameters which have prognostic value, and working with experiential biology groups to develop more efficient treatments for infection and disease.
