Mathematical Modelling for Biology, Health, and Environment

The purpose of this seminar is to provide a stimulating discussion platform between applied and pure mathematicians, mathematical biologists, statisticians, data scientists, on one side, and colleagues from biology, health, and environmental research on the other. We aim to learn more about each others' work and highlight emerging modelling opportunities. Every talk will be geared to non-experts, so come along if you like to learn new things and if you are looking to develop new collaborations.

In Semester B (2023-2024), we meet at 13:00pm (unless otherwise specified) on Mondays (in-person) in MB-503. The seminar is hybrid and can be also attended via this zoom link.

The organisers:

Natasha Blitvic, Weini Huang, Rainer Klages, Kostas Papafitsoros
