Dr. Dahlin's research integrates ecological theory and mathematical tools to improve our understanding of the transmission of mosquito-borne parasites. His research utilizes a diverse array of mathematical modeling techniques such as ordinary differential equations, stochastic differential equations, individual-based models, and optimal control theory.
His recent work focuses on determining to what extent mathematical models can be used to identify the traits that make certain animal populations more likely to spread diseases to human populations.
