Patrick De Leenheer

#### Professor

My research interests are in mathematical biology and dynamical systems. I've worked on problems in ecology, epidemiology, bioreactors, chemical and biochemcial reaction networks, social networks, physics and graphs. Some of this work has been in collaboration with natural scientists. Most of the models I work on are examples of dynamical systems (ODEs, PDEs, linear and nonlinear maps,etc) and I'm interested in both theoretical and applied problems arising in this context. Occasionally, I use ideas and methods from control theory, especially when there is a need to modify or influence the behavior of a given dynamical system.
