I am a Professor in the Mathematics Department of North Carolina State University, and Director of NC State's Biomathematics Graduate Program. I am a co-PI of a new NSF-funded IGERT graduate program on Genetic Engineering and Society: The Case of Transgenic Pests.
My research uses mathematical models and statistical analyses to address questions which arise in many areas of biology. My main interest is in the study of infectious diseases, including the epidemiology of childhood diseases (such as measles) and the behaviour of viral infections (e.g. HIV) within individuals. More widely, I am interested in biological oscillations, such as circadian and ultradian rhythms, and the properties of biological networks (in a variety of contexts, including metabolic networks, epidemiological or social networks and neuronal networks).
I studied mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, before moving to the Department of Zoology in Oxford to do a Ph.D. with Robert May. I spent four years between 1999 and 2003 in the Institute for Advanced Study's Program in Theoretical Biology. I am now a faculty member in the Mathematics department and the Biomathematics Graduate Program of North Carolina State University.
