My main research interests are the use of mathematical models to help solve problems in Ecology and Epidemiology. Research emphasis is on application of bifurcation theory for the analysis mathematical models based on processes and mechanisms at lower levels of organization, such as the individual, to solve problems at higher levels, such as populations and ecosystems. Topics of special interest are the role of interactions between populations, such as predator-prey interaction, disease transmission, inducible defence mechanisms and competition on ecosystem structure and functioning.

Thank you for your interest in our work.
