Mathematical Biology

Mathematical Biology is an interdisciplinary area that involves development of novel mathematical tools to provide insight into biological processes. This is done in close collaboration with empirical researchers from biological sciences, medicine, engineering and public health, among others. We combine model development, analytical and numerical tools, as well as data to address real-world problems.
