Research Description

The work of my group involves the use of mathematical models and computer simulations. We like nothing better than to validate models by confronting them with experimental data --- we try to make testable predictions, and in collaboration with experimentalists conduct the relevant experiments. We work in close collaboration with experimental immunologists, in particular the group of Dr. Rafi Ahmed at Emory.

Research Lab Description

I am interested in developing a quantitative understanding of the dynamics of pathogens and immune responses.
