VT MathBio

Mathematical Biology is an interdisciplinary area that involves development of novel mathematical tools to provide insight into biological processes. This is done in close collaboration with empirical researchers from biological sciences, medicine, engineering and public health, among others. We combine model development, analytical and numerical tools, as well as data to address real-world problems. Research programs by our faculty include modeling immune response and infectious disease spread.

Primary Faculty

Additional Faculty
Beyond our primary faculty, the math department has other affiliated MathBio faculty: John Burns, Layne Watson.

Seminar and Lab Meeting


We host a weekly math biology seminar where faculty, post-docs and graduate students from Virginia Tech and other universities come to share their new and exciting research.

Lab Meeting

The math biology group hosts a weekly meeting with the graduate students to discuss current literature, lead discussions, and share on-going research. These meetings provide a great opportunity to engage with other graduate students in math biology in an informal environment.
