Dr. Peter Kim - The University of Sydney
Recent experiments with engineered oncolytic adenovirus have caused substantial reduction in growth rates of tumours in mice.  We develop ordinary differential equation (ODE) models based on the data...

Dr. Ruth Baker - University of Oxford
Discrete-state, continuous-time Markov models are widely used in the modelling of biochemical reaction networks. Their complexity generally precludes analytic solution, and so we rely on Monte Carlo...

Dr. Megan Smith and A/Prof. Karen Canfell - University of New South Wales
The Cancer Screening Group in the Lowy Cancer Research Centre provides policy-makers with the information needed to enable evidence-based decision making for cancer prevention and screening. The...

Prof. Jean-Luc Thiffeault - University of Wisconsin - Madison
As fish, microorganisms, or other bodies move through a fluid, they stir their surroundings.  This can be beneficial to some fish, since the plankton they eat depends on a well-stirred medium to feed...

Prof. Liqun Qi - The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Positive definite matrices and positive semi-definite matrices are very important concepts of matrix analysis in both theory and applications. In the recent decade, these two concepts have been...

Prof. Sergei Fedotov - The University of Manchester
The standard models for the description of anomalous subdiffusive transport of particles  are linear fractional equations.The question arises as to how to extend these equations for the nonlinear...

Prof. Hans Mittelmann - Arizona State University
As is well-known semidefinite relaxations of discrete optimization problems can yield excellent bounds on their solutions. We present three examples from our collaborative research. The first...
