## Mathematical Biology

We address significant biological questions by building and analyzing process-based, dynamic mathematical models, and by connecting such models with data. Developing and analyzing mathematical models allows us to answer complex questions that are otherwise not tractable through direct observation. Ideally, the modeling process is iterative, with the biology motivating the development of mathematics and the mathematics in turn motivating new empirical studies.

We develop and apply a range of mathematical tools from the diverse fields of dynamical systems, bifurcation theory, probability and stochastic processes, inverse methods, perturbation theory, simulation, and statistics.
