Modeling the Impact of Ebola and Bushmeat Hunting on Western Lowland Gorillas

In May 2003, together with fellow Mathematician Stephanie Gruver, Statistician Young-Ju Kim, and Forestry Engineer Carol Rizkalla, we worked on this little project to apply ideas from Dynamical Systems to an epidemiology model of the Ebola hemorrhagic fever in the Republic of Congo. The manuscript ebola/root.pdf is a first draft, and contains most of the mathematics behind the study. Carol worked in a less-math-more-biology version: ebola/Ecohealth.pdfModeling the Impact of Ebola and Bushmeat Hunting on Western Lowland Gorillas,” and presented it to EcoHealth, where it has been published (June 2007). She also prepared a poster for the Sigma-Xi competition: Click on the image below to retrieve a PowerPoint version of it.
