I am interested in modelling real world systems, and in particular population dynamics, using differential equations. My DPhil project is concerned with formulating mathematical models to describe and forecast the spread of multiple diseases throughout a population. My previous work includes modelling the roasting of coffee beans for my InFoMM Mini Project, and the popularity of viral videos using an epidemic model for my Masters thesis.
