My research is centered around dynamical systems models of biological or other processes. It is weighted toward the applied end of the mathematics spectrum, often concerned with implementation details and issues of making the mathematics accessible to biologists and engineers. My research spans a wide set of disciplines, including algorithm development, numerical analysis, dynamical systems, mathematical modeling, and bifurcation theory, but dynamics is a unifying theme throughout.
I enjoy working closely with experimentalists helping solve the problems in which they are interested, but am also interested in the more mathematical issues which often surface from this research.
Many of my master's students have gone on to Ph.D. studies, and one has completed teacher's college and is currently working as an I.T. training specialist. Two of my Ph.D. students have gone on to post-doctoral work, and one now has a faculty position.
