Mathematical Biology

Mathematical biologists in our department tackle a wide variety of research questions. The answers to the questions they ask have important implications for how laboratory science is conducted, how public-health policy is set, and how animal societies are maintained over time.

Currently, our department has active research programs modelling experimental evolution, the spread of infectious disease, species invasions, arterial blood flow, and animal behaviour. In addition, faculty members carry out research into mathematical topics such as differential equations, and dynamical systems.
