Mathematical Biology

Blood cells on a red background

Mathematical biology is a rich and diverse field at the intersection of mathematics and biology. Our faculty apply mathematical techniques to important biological problems in collaboration with students and faculty from several ecological and biological departments from across Oregon State University and the world. Research topics revolve around the mathematics of infectious diseases, deterministic and stochastic models of population dynamics, spatial ecology and genomics, among others.
