Evolutionary and Population Dynamics of Bacteria and Phage

Bacterial viruses, aka bacteriophage or phage, are ubiquitous in nature, yet many central aspects of host-phage biology have not been integrated into mathematical models. In this talk I present a series of theoretical efforts to understand the div   more››

Grad Student Working Groups on Stochastic Modeling in Infectious Disease

Grad students from across North America will meet for one month in order to work on stochastic modeling in a number of aspects of infectious disease modeling. Following some introductory lectures, students will divide into teams and work on projects.   more››

Mathematical Modelling of Host-Parasitoid Systems: Spatio-Temporal Dynamics

Parasitoids are a specialised class of predators that use a single prey or host for their juvenile development but unlike parasites kill the host as a result of this development. Within this lifestyle there are many variations in life history that   more››

MITACS Math Biology Seminar 2007

As the systems approaches are actively adopted in biology, studies for revealing the link between physical dynamics and corresponding molecular mechanism will be crucial to better understanding of the inherent complexity and dynamics of biological   more››

Habitat use and movements of plains zebra in response to predation

Prey species must adapt their behavior to avoid predation while meeting resource needs. In East Africa savannah, plains zebra are a key prey for lions. We study a population of 600 plains zebra in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya. We test how zebra mo   more››

Mathematical models in radiation biology

In this talk, I will review concepts in radiation biology that allow us to model the effectiveness of radiation therapy in the treatment of cancer. In particular, I will focus on the Tumour Control Probability (TCP), which is the probability that   more››

Modeling relapse in infectious diseases

An integro-differential equation is proposed to model a general relapse phenomenon in infectious diseases including herpes. The basic reproduction number Ro for the model is identified and a threshold property of Ro established. For the case of a   more››

Wild fish, farmed fish and sea lice—a big-box model with spatial effects

The Anderson-May dynamical model for host-macroparasite systems is extended to include resource limitation and the distribution of both resource limitation effects and parasite pathogenicity over host mortality and natality. When the equilibrium h   more››

Epizootics of wild fish induced by farm fish

The continuing decline of ocean fisheries and rise of global fish consumption has driven aquaculture growth by 10% annually over the last decade. The association of fish farms with disease emergence in sympatric wild fish stocks remains one of the   more››

Spatiotemporal patterns in models of biological invasion and epidemic spread

This seminar is intended to give an informal overview of my previous work and some recent ideas. I am especially interested in patterns of spatiotemporal dynamics that are induced by the joint interplay of spatial spread, demographics (e.g., Allee   more››
