As of December 19th 2022, I became Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in NC State’s College of Sciences, having previously served as interim associate dean.
I am honored to have been asked to join the editorial board of the journal Mathematical Biosciences. The journal has been one of the most important publication venues in mathematical biology and a number of its papers have inspired me over the years (including “Spatial heterogeneity and the design of immunization programs”, co-written by my D.Phil. advisor, Bob May, and Roy Anderson) and so I was very happy to accept this invitation.
I am honored to have received an Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Professor award. This is in recognition of work in promoting graduate education at NC State and the work with, and achievements of, the fantastic group of graduate students with whom I have had the fortune of working over the years here. Thanks to all the wonderful students and the broader Biomathematics family, past and present, as this award says a lot about all the great things that we do at the interface of mathematical and biological sciences.
Michael Vella’s paper on reversal of gene drives was accepted by Nature Scientific Reports. Read the preprint version of his work at Biorxiv.
I gave a talk on Brandon Hollingsworth’s work on the “divorce effect” at the Biomath 2017 conference, Kruger National Park, South Africa
I am honored to have been appointed Drexel Professor of Mathematics by my College, in recognition of research accomplishments and contributions to graduate education and training. This would not have been possible without contributions and encouragement from so many wonderful collaborators, postdocs, students, mentors and colleagues over the years, or without the support of the broader NC State biomath family. Thank you all!
Visit to Emory to work with Gonzalo Vazquez-Prokopec and to give a seminar to the PBEE program.
