My primary interest is in the Mathematical Modelling of Biological Evolution, with a particular stress on Viral Evolution. The choice of viruses as the case study is motivated by the fact that, due to their simplicity, viruses can serve as an excellent experimental model in evolutionary biology. However, the study of viral evolution is also motivated by its obvious practical relevance, as evolution is the most significant factor responsible to the emergence of new pathogens, and the development of drugresistance by the existing.
