Information of interest

I am a biologist by training, highly trained in nonlinear dynamics, bifurcation analysis and biostatistics. Using methods from dynamical systems theory and stochastic processes, my work consists of developing and analyzing descriptive and predictive models of infectious diseases, addressing significant mathematical problems and fundamental
questions in biology, which require a highly interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary approach.

With special focus on the study of dengue fever (and other vector borne diseases) and its dynamics, I develop mathematical models to identify possible approaches to control disease transmission and for assessing the potential impact of different intervention measures.

My research interests are focused on public health epidemiology with emphasis on: i) Epidemiological dynamics of multi-strain infectious diseases; ii) Interplay between pathogen serotypes and cross-immunity; iii) Epidemiological dynamics of vaccine preventable diseases; iv) Epidemiological dynamics of vector-pathogen-host interaction; v) Within-host dynamics focusing on immune responses; vi) Complex dynamics, empirical data analysis and public health intervention measures.
