Mathematical Biology
Mathematical biology concerns the application of mathematics to model and understand the complexity of living organisms at both individual and population levels. Areas of interests at WSU include drug delivery, virus and cell dynamics, neural systems, foraging, forest modeling, and infectious disease dynamics.
