"Mechanistic models help to understand complex dynamics of the spread of infections"

Egil Fischer wants to find the answers why sometimes micro-organisms can spread more easily between animals and farms than other situations. He is especially interested in antibioticum resistance. In his work he primarily uses dynamic mathematical models and simulation models to interpret field or experimental data.

  Egil welcomes students of all faculties, who would like to write a Master or Bachelor thesis on 

  • The spread of microorganisms between hosts
  • Infectious disease dynamics
  • The spread of antimicrobial resistance
  • Agent-based models
