My research interests are in mathematical modeling and simulation, in particular:

  • Mathematical ecology
  • Stochastic spatial models in population ecology (e.g. interacting particle systems, individual-based models, metapopulations)
  • Spatial epidemiological models
  • Dispersal on heterogeneous fragmented landscapes
  • Cellular automata
  • Collective computational behavior of swarms of simple agents
  • Complex systems, artificial life
  • Modeling the spread of malicious software (computer worms) through networks
