About this site

My name is Mihaly Koltai, I am a research scientist and this is a website on my work in mathematical biology as well as some other interests I have.


Since 2010 I have worked on mathematical modelling of biological systems, applied to molecular biology (systems biology) and to infectious diseases (infectious disease modelling).

I obtained a PhD from Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Germany) in 2012 with a thesis on mathematical modelling of microbial signalling pathways. I am currently a research fellow in the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, working on transmission modelling of infectious diseases.

For published work in mathematical biology click here and for posts on the same topic here.

Occasionally I also write about economic and political topics, trying to combine qualitative social theory with quantitative thinking.
