About: I am a graduate student at the department of mathematics and institute of applied mathematics (IAM) of the university of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver. Prior to coming to UBC, I was at the African institute for mathematical sciences (AIMS), South Africa, where I did a masters of Science in mathematical sciences. I am currently in a PhD program working with Michael Ward , Colin Macdonald, and Daniel Coombs, and my research focuses on mathematical modelling of biological systems. Teaching: Math 152: Linear systems
Math 215/255: Elementary Differential Equations I Topics: Firstorder equations, linear equations, linear systems, Laplace transforms, numerical methods, trajectory analysis of plane nonlinear systems. Applications of these topics will be emphasized.
Research Interest: I am mostly interested in mathematical modelling and analysis of biological systems. Click here for more information on my research and some projects I am working on.
