I am an applied mathematician with research interests in mathematical biology and differential equations. Mathematical modeling and analysis are important parts of my teaching and research. I use partial, delay and ordinary differential equations for modeling and analysis of infectious diseases and population dynamics. I also use statistical models for predicting and analyzing different factors in science and medicine. Feel free to contact me, if you need more details.

Math and Music

"Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting" Gottfried Leibniz, See the simulations of the PDE models related to different musical instruments. See also "Artist in Residence 2018 FAI"

Numerical Simulations

See the numerical simulations of a nonlocal delayed reaction-diffusion population model of single species. This model has been crucial to explore the dynamics single species through its nonlinear wave solutions.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research is a high impact educational practice that can be tied to the local community. For instance, Math 206 were able to identify the Kansas City zip codes that were influenced by increased water bills [Read More].  See also the featured Kansas City Public Television’s documentary “Public Works – Water Rates and Rivers

Math and Stat Research Day (MSRD)

The MSRD provides a platform for students and faculty to publicly present their research and scholarly activities in mathematics and statistics. 

Student Projects and Matlab codes

Several projects are available both at the graduate and undergraduate levels; See the recent projects completed and presented by the students.

Student Organizations

Any UMKC student can join the Math Club & MSGSO. Feel free to attend the events and meetings.
