Gedeon’s lecture will focus on the power of mathematical models to express, simulate and investigate complex systems. He said he intends to illustrate how mathematical modeling has helped researchers understand a variety of systems ranging from microbial partnerships and gene expression levels to developmental patterns and the behavior of epidemics.
