CMB members work on a variety of problems related to biological growth and spread from the molecular through the cellular to the organismal level, particularly in the areas of ecology, evolution and epidemiology. More specifically, the current key research activities of these members can be summarised as follows:
Collaborations between members of CMB are encouraged; we use the seminar series to allow members of the university to present problems in the biological and life sciences research into which would benefit from mathematical modelling. In recent years, these collaborations include: evolutionary ecology of asexual reproduction (Britton and Mogie); control of agricultural pests (White and Charnley); evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria (Britton and Feil); ecology of tick-borne disease (Britton, Kurtenbach and White); ecology and behaviour of ants (Britton and James); genetics of co-evolutionary interactions (Gudelj and Hurst); mathematical models of pseudogenes (Gudelj and Jefferies); drug delivery and monitoring (Delgado-Charro and White).
Key research activities of affiliated members include evolution and structure of genetic systems (Hurst); animal behaviour (Szekely); macroevolution (Wills); networks (Robinson); image analysis (Hurn); medical statistics (Jennison); random walks (Harris and Moerters); spatial statistical ecology (Augustin, Woods); evolution of language (Bryson).
