Harremana


I am now pursuing a PhD at BCAM. My master's thesis was based on solving non-linear partial differential equations using the Sinc Collocation technique. My thesis models describe the phenomenon of wave propagation. I decided to apply my mathematical modeling to Biosciences to investigate disease dynamics, hence I chose within-Host dynamics. Modeling the host-immune components involved in illness development is the topic of my PhD research. I'm using a within-host modeling approach to better understand the immunopathogenesis of severe disease as a result of primary and subsequent infections with the same pathogens, as well as infections with different pathogens, such as animal-to-human spillover of new pathogens with pandemic potential. Different infectious illnesses' shared characteristics are being considered. The models will be validated using laboratory data on antibodies that mediate immune responses, and then the potential for imperfect and selective vaccination effectiveness will be investigated.
