Research Interests

To date, my research has focused on the development of new deterministic and stochastic epidemic models for the spread of disease in a structured host population.  Past models have been included difference as well as differential equations with both fixed or periodic coefficients.  I use theory as well as simulations to investigate the richness of the models.

Future directions in research include investigating the robustness of stability results, improved visualization techniques for bifurcations in higher dimensions, animal movement models, epidemic models that incorporate a spatial component, and population genetics.  Parallel algorithms and genetic algorithms will most likely be of great use in exploring these new topics.

Personal Interests

Woodworking, metalworking, reading (I have a Kindle now!).
