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.
New paper by Andy Monaghan, discussing the spatiotemporal distribution of Aedes aegypti in the continental US.
Kenichi Okamoto’s paper on combined control strategies against vector-borne infections appears in PLoS Computational Biology.
A pair of papers with lead authors Dan Villeneuve (EPA, Duluth, MN) and my former student Miyuki Breen were acknowledged with a 2015 Scientific and Technological Achievement Award (Level III) from the Environmental Protection Agency. Congratulations all around!
