My research crosses the different epidemiological areas of infectious diseases, with special focus on the study of dengue fever (and other vector borne diseases) and its dynamics. I develop mathematical models which can be used by public health authorities as a tool to understand and predict the transmission of diseases and to evaluate the introduction of intervention strategies and its impact on different epidemiological scenarios. My research interests focus on public health epidemiology with emphasis on

  • Infectious disease transmission dynamics
  • Epidemiological dynamics of multi-strain diseases
    Epidemiological dynamics of vaccine preventable diseases
  • Epidemiological dynamics of vector-borne diseases
  • Cost effectiveness analysis and optimal control
  • Within-host dynamics of infection processes and immunological responses 
  • Interplay between pathogen serotypes and cross-immunity
  • Multi-scale modeling and complex dynamics
  • Data analysis, parameter estimation and prediction
  • Complex dynamics and bifurcation analysis
