My main research interests are in the area of differential equations and optimal control, primarily related to models in mathematical biology. Most models that I have developed and/or studied are nonlinear, both for ordinary and (parabolic) partial differential equations. Current applications include population dynamics and invasive species, as well as cancer treatment. Earlier work looked at stochastic optimal control of porous media flow.
