Plenary Speakers

    Glenn F. Webb is a mathematician at Vanderbilt University. He received his Ph.D. from Emory University in 1968. He has published over 170 articles in research journals. In 1985 he published a research monograph Theory of Nonlinear Age-Dependent Population Dynamics. He has supervised 19 Ph.D. students at Vanderbilt University. He became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society in 2012. His research interests include: (1) mathematical models of tumor cell populations and the role of stem cells in tumor cell proliferation; (2) mathematical models of antibiotic resistance and the development of antibiotic resistance in hospital patient populations; (3) mathematical models of multi-group dynamics in epidemics; (4) mathematical models of the 2014 Ebola epidemic in West Africa and the impact of contact tracing; (6) mathematical models of tumor growth and the interpretation of lung CT scans; (7) mathematical models of the Zika epidemic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and (8) mathematical models of epidemics in spatial regions.
