Welcome to visit the Yuan Modelling Group at City University of Hong Kong. I am Dr. Sean Hsiang-yu Yuan, a mathematical modeller of infectious diseases and biological systems. Here I would introduce you the application of mathematical modelling in biology and public health. If your background is Biology but have a strong passion for Data Science and Computing, or vice versa if Math or Computing is your background but wish to understand Biology more, feel free to read research page and contact me with your CV. A PhD student and few research assistants positions are open now.
Why mathematical modelling?
Mathematical modelling is a sophisticated approach to study the behaviours of a system under different conditions in an ideal case. For infectious disease simulation, modelling allows birth, migration, and death events, as well as imperfect immunity to be present in mathematical forms. In modern notation, these model can be represented as compartmental model.
What modelling can do in biomedical research?
Modelling approach can be used to infer dynamics of a system in complex scenarios such as the mechanism of pathogens' evolution, vaccination impacts on disease transmission, cancer cells evolution and personalized treatment.
