My main research focuses on developing mathematical models that improve our understanding of drug action in bacterial infections, particularly tuberculosis (TB). Drug resistance is a major challenge and threat to the global control of TB, and new drugs and regimens are urgently needed. Mathematical modeling can be used to predict optimal dosing strategies and therefore potentially shorten the development cycle for new drugs. I am interested in using mathematical models to study the relationship between chemical reaction kinetics of antibiotics and the dynamics of bacterial populations in patients. This will be useful in optimizing dosing regimens for trials of new TB drugs and preventing relapse.
