Natalia Komarova's CV and publications


Research interests

My interests lie in the interface between mathematical and life sciences. I try to formulate interesting questions in areas of biology, medical and social sciences and linguistics, in the language of mathematics. Then I try to find answers to these questions by using techniques of applied math. My two main interests are modeling of cancer and evolution of language. Follow the links for more information.

- Modeling of cancer

- Other topics in mathematical biology (virus dynamics, signaling networks, Alzheimer's disease)

- Mathematical modeling of learning and evolution of language, historical dynamics, color categorization
