Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics
Ph.D., Arizona State University, USA, 2008
My main areas of study are Dynamical Systems with applications in life and social sciences.
My research interests have both theoretical and modeling components.
The theoretical component is to study global dynamics of systems that are of interest to biologists,
which includes permanence of population models, spatial patterns of invasive species with Allee effects
in heterogenous environment, the role of space in the exploitation of resources. The modeling component is to explore different modeling techniques, based on experiments or important hypotheses,
to get a better understanding of quantitatively and qualitatively various aspects of biological/social behaviors,
structures, and processes.
