  • PhD in Mathematics, The Ohio State University, 1997

When I have the opportunity to do research, it lies somewhere in the interactions between networks (graph theory), algebra, and biology (especially epidemiology). My two most recent projects involve an individual-based network model for the spread of heavy drinking, and parameter identifiability in SIR and SIR-type models.
