Current group members

Jessica M. Conway (PI)

Jessica is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Penn State. She is interested in modeling viral infections at the within- and between-host levels, with particular emphasis on the interplay between infection and intervention. For more details, see Research .

Hannah Herriott (Undergraduate research)

Hannah is a junior mathematics major with a biology minor at Penn State. She's modeling the use of antiretroviral therapy for HIV taken in advance of exposure to the virus, to prevent infection (termed pre-exposure prophylaxis, PrEP for short).

Rachel Hoellman (Undergraduate research)

Rachel is a junior industrial mathematics major at Penn State. She's using models to investigate optimal age-targeting vaccination strategies to reduce infection and mortality, when a vaccination campaign is rolled out mid-epidemic. Which is exactly what happened during the last pandemic, i.e. the pH1N1 epidemic in 2009.
