Dr. Ciupe's research interest is in the field of applied mathematics, specifically, systems of ordinary and delay differential equations and their application to biology and medicine.

We 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 mechanisms regulating immune population sizes, phenotypes and diversity.

The techniques we use derive from dynamical systems, information and model selection theory as well as sensitivity, perturbation and numerical analysis.
