My primary research interests are to understand biological phenomena by
using mathematical methods.
Investigating how certain phenomena are occurred has attracted my
attention. In particular, I have been
interested in understanding mechanisms of how one species respond to
another species (in ecology),
deriving mathematical models, analyzing the models, and interpreting
the results in biological words.
Currently I have been working on understanding mountain pine
beetle outbreaks in western Canada,
from the perspective of competition with a secondary bark
beetle or with a different subgroup.
My M.Sc. thesis was on developing and analyzing models of cross
influenza infection between pigs and humans
(with constant and with variable cross infection rates, as well as with
and without time delays).
Teaching
At the begining of the first class, I told my students, "why I am here
is not to evaluate you guys,
but help you obtain required knowledge from this course". I think the
above statement is my attitude in class to my students.
