Research interests

My research is mainly concentrated in the following areas

Mathematical biology and epidemiology

  • Plant immune response and RNA interference
  • Control of plant parasites
  • Interactions between epidemics and awareness
  • Dynamics of diseases on networks

Mathematical modelling in immunology and autoimmunity

  • Pathogen-induced autoimmunity
  • Stochastic effects in the dynamics of immune response
  • Stochastic delayed models

Delay differential equations

  • Time-delayed feedback control
  • Stability and synchronization in networks with time-delayed connections
  • Distributed time delays
  • Numerical bifurcation analysis and simulations
