Research in our groupMicrobes, such as bacteria and viruses, evolve very quickly. Researchers can study a laboratory population for months or even years, watching evolution unfold before their eyes. One of the main goals in our research group is to model this process mathematically. This is exciting because the mathematical models allow us to make concrete predictions about evolution.
We are also interested in the evolution of HIV, especially in the rate at which drug-resistance to HIV therapy develops, and in ways of designing drug regimens that minimize this risk.
My other research interests include:
evolutionary game theory,
and many other applications of mathematics to biology.
