Theoretical biology of virus and immune system dynamics, and response to therapeutic strategies especially in the context of HIV-1 infection. Theoretical approaches involve the use of ordinary differential equations and nonlinear mixed effects models and other statistical tools to analyze and interpret longitudinal data from in-vivo experiments and clinical trials. The aim is to quantify key parameters in virus infection, characterize the in-vivo effects of therapeutic agents and develop specific and testable hypotheses to guide future clinical trials.
