Xi Huo

I received my PhD in Mathematics from Vanderbilt University in 2014, under the supervision of Dr. Glenn Webb. I am originally from China, and I got my B.S. in Mathematics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2008.

After graduating from Vanderbilt and before joining UMiami, I worked as a postdoc with Dr. Jianhong Wu and his team of Industrial and Applied Mathematics in Toronto, Canada. In the past three years, I have been teaching courses and co-mentoring students at York University and Ryerson University.

My research interest lies in the area of mathematical biology, which typically involves collaborations between mathematicians and biologists. Specifically, I am interested in developing differential equation models and applying mathematical theory of dynamical systems to simulate and understand problems arising from the broad area of life sciences. The biological topics of interests include (but not limited to) antimicrobial drug resistance and healthcare acquired infections, emerging and re-emerging human infectious diseases, and vector-borne diseases.
