  •  Winner of the Bellman Prize 2015 for the article

Currently working on:
My current research focuses on the mathematical modelling of infectious diseases. More specifically I am interested in effects of human behavioural response in the impact of epidemics (especially during outbreaks) and on the effect of demographic changes on the epidemic spread in SSA countries . I am interested in both theoretical models and public health issues.
