Currently I am a postdoc with Dr. Alan Perelson in the Theoretical Biology and Biophysics group at Los Alamos National Laboratory in sunny New Mexico, USA. At LANL I am mainly investigating problems in mathematical immunology and infectious diseases, specifically with regards to HIV.
From 2008-2012 I was a postdoc in the Mathematical Biology group in the Mathematics Department at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Coombs. For part of that time I was jointly supervised by Dr. Babak Pourbohloul in the Division of Mathematical Modeling at the BC Centre for Disease Control. At UBC I developed a keen interest in infectious disease modeling, both at the within-host and between-host (epidemiology) levels.
Between 2002 and 2008 I was a graduate student in the Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics Department at Northwestern University in Evanston (just north of Chicago), IL, USA. Since 2003 I had been working with my advisor Dr. Hermann Riecke on modeling complex patterns in oscillatory systems; I successfully defended my Ph.D. on July 23rd, 2008.
