My research focuses on developing and analyzing disease transmission models for human infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, Hepatitis virus, STIs etc. Such models could be complex differential equation systems with characters like nonlinearity and high-dimension. Both qualitative analysis approaches and numerical simulations are utilized to investigate disease dynamics for public health practice modeling purpose.
