Bio


My research focus is infectious disease modeling and optimal control theory. Besides, I am interested in machine learning algorithms and statistical modeling. In my research, I am using mathematical tools to understand the behavior of the diseases and manage the control strategies for the diseases. I’ve been involved in a couple of research projects for building new mathematical models for Leptospirosis infectious disease and I am currently working on schistosomiasis infectious disease to predict future projection of the disease propagation under climate change.
