BIOMOD is led by Prof Rachel Norman.
Its core focus is to develop
innovative inter-disciplinary computational and mathematical modelling
approaches to high impact real-world problems and to deepen our
understanding of the environment in which we live. We use mathematical
and computational techniques to describe biological and socio-economic
processes, to predict their course, and to design ways to control them.
We develop novel techniques that assist us in these tasks.

Techniques we develop
Structured populations models
Stochastic and simulation models
Agent-based models and games
Process algebra models of networks
Big data analysis and computation
Model formulation, identification checking
Bio-economic models (optimal control)
Areas where we apply our work
Human diseases: influenza, tick-borne diseases, NoV
