**My current research is focused on two areas: (1) modelling the estrogen (menstrual) cycle in humans to study cycle abnormalities, and (2) the use of
stocking, harvesting and migration to control the dynamical behavior of deterministic models in population biology and genetics.

MAA Minicourse at the New Orleans Joint Meeting, January 2007

**Title: Some Deterministic Models in Mathematical Biology and Their Simulations **

**Instructors: James F. Selgrade (North Carolina State University),
Cammey Cole (Meredith College)
and Huseyin Kocak (University of Miami)
**

** This course presented and
analyzed the Hodgkin-Huxley and FitzHugh-Nagumo models, chemostat
models, pharmacokinetics models and discrete population models. The class was conducted in
a computer lab where participants used the software Phaser to simulate model behavior.
