My research is highly multidisciplinary and uses ideas from statistics and control engineering to obtain a sharper and more rigorous understanding of biological processes. In particular, I have applied stochastic, information, queueing, estimation and control theory to uncover new insights into molecular biology, epidemiology and invertebrate neuroscience. My current work looks at developing new models for epidemic transmission and control, which justifiably trade complexity with reliability.
