|I am a Ph.D candidate in Department of Mathematics at University of Tennessee, Knoxville .
My research interests area is Dynamical systems, Stochastic processes,
Mathematical modelling of infectious disease, Optimal control.
My Ph.D. work is involving a stochastic process model for early detection
of Leptospirosis and Epidemiology of Leptospirosis in Cattle.
Leptospirosis represents an emerging public health problem worldwide.
It is a zoonosis caused by bacteria that belongs to the Leptospira
genus. Early diagnosis of leptospirosis is essential since antibiotic
therapy provides greatest benefit when initiated early in the course of
illness. My goal is to find an optimal stragey in order to maximize the
number of Early detected Leptospirosis patients showing up at a hospital while minimizing the
