Research Interests Areas

Mathematical Epidemiology: - modeling the dynamics and effects of diseases such as; HIV/AIDS, Malaria, TB,  Banana Wilt, Newcastle, Brucellosis, and Schistosomiasis. I also have great interests in modeling within-host disease dynamics. Furthermore, I have interest in the application of Optimal control approach to disease models. My research interest also extends to the applications of Bayesian Methodology to disease models.
