Carlos Castillo-Chavez: Keynote at B.E.E.R.
|Carlos Castillo-Chávez will headline International Symposium on Biomathematics and Ecology Education Research. Known as B.E.E.R., the symposium draws in some of the top names in the emerging field of biomathematics. This year, it will take place at Illinois State University from October 9 to 11, 2015.
Castillo-Chavez’s work uses both mathematical models and an understanding of ecology to explore the spread of diseases. “Biomathematics is the interface where mathematical and natural sciences meet social sciences,” said Illinois State Professor of Mathematics Olcay Akman, who is co-organizing the symposium. “If biomathematics has an Einstein of our field, then it is Castillo-Chavez.”
