Mathematical Biology is an active research area in the Mathematics Institute, and Warwick in general. The Zeeman Institute for Systems Biology & Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research (SBIDER) specialises in bringing sophisticated mathematics to challenges in biological sciences. Mathematical immunology, epidemiology, ecology and genetics are the main areas in the department, exploiting mathematical techniques from both the deterministic (ODEs, PDEs) and stochastic arenas. Interaction with biologists is fundamental to much of the research activities. The Centre for Scientific Computing further increases research interests in mathematical biology, specifically in computation and simulation of cells and cell processes.
Interests within the department include:
- Phylogenetic tree construction
- Pattern formation and spiral waves
- Molecular biology
- Mathematical modelling
- Dynamical systems
