Professor and Faculty of Science Research Chair in Fundamental Science with the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manitoba.
- My research deals primarily with population movement in epidemiology and ecology, with particular interest on the spatio-temporal spread of infectious diseases. In this context, I am interested in two main aspects: the relationship between mobility modalities and the fast global spread of infectious pathogens, as well as the effect of interconnections of public health systems with a variety of health practices. I use mathematical modelling to consider the risk of importation of disease to various public health entities. I have also dabbled with other mathematical biology problems.
- As part of my work, I have become more and more interested in the use of data in my models, hence my membership in VADA and the Data Science NEXUS.
- From 22 to 26 May 2023, Kang-Ling Liao, Stéphanie Portet and I are co-organising the sixth edition of the Computational and Mathematical Population Dynamics conference (CMPD6) in Winnipeg; see details here.
