I am very excited to start as an assistant professor in the Personalized Medicine Cluster and the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University (NCSU). Students interested in pursuing PhD in mathematical modeling of HIV, HCV and/or viral evolution are welcome to contact me through my email listed below. NCSU has a very strong Biomathematics Graduate Program and highly active communities of researchers in multiple departments working on mathematical biology, infectious diseases and biomedical problems. It is ideally situated in the Research Triangle area, which offers rich opportunities for close interactions with researchers and industrial professionals in a variety of fields. Being 2-3 hours (drive) away from the ocean and mountains, the city of Raleigh offers diverse recreation opportunities.
