    Research Interests:

    My research interest is in the field of applied mathematics, specifically, systems of delay differential equations and their application to biology and medicine. I focus on characterization of immune system onset and reaction against viral diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection, Hepatitis B and Dengue virus infections, and on understanding the possible homeostatic mechanisms regulating lymphocyte population sizes and their T cell receptor diversity. The techniques I use derive from dynamical systems, information and model selection theory as well as sensitivity, perturbation and numerical analysis.
