Bio

Carlos Castillo-Chavez is a Regents Professor, a Joaquin Bustoz Jr. Professor of Mathematical Biology, and a Distinguished Sustainability Scientist at Arizona State University. Carlos Castillo-Chavez' research program is at the interface of the mathematical and natural and social sciences with emphasis on (i) the role of dynamic social landscapes on disease dispersal; (ii) the role of environmental and social structures on the dynamics of addiction and disease evolution, and (iii) Dynamics of complex systems at the interphase of ecology, epidemiology and the social sciences. Carlos Castillo-Chavez has co-authored over two hundred publications, edited several volumes of research articles, and co-authored a textbook in Mathematical Biology in 2001 (second edition in 2012). He edited a volume (with Tom Banks) on the use of mathematical models in homeland security published in SIAM's Frontiers in Applied Mathematics Series (2003); co-edited volumes in the Series Contemporary Mathematics entitled “Mathematical Studies on Human Disease Dynamics: Emerging Paradigms and Challenges” (American Mathematical Society, 2006) and Mathematical and Statistical Estimation Approaches in Epidemiology (Springer-Verlag, 2009) highlighting his interests in the applications of mathematics in emerging and re-emerging diseases. Castillo-Chavez is a member of the Santa Fe Institute's external faculty, adjunct professor at Cornell University, and contributor, as a member of the Steering Committee of the “Committee for the Review of the Evaluation Data on the Effectiveness of NSF-Supported and Commercially Generated Mathematics Curriculum Materials,” to a 2004 NRC report. The CBMS workshop “Mathematical Epidemiology with Applications” lectures delivered by C. Castillo-Chavez and F. Brauer in 2011 will soon be published by SIAM.

         Castillo-Chavez is the founding director of the Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center and the graduate field in applied mathematics in the life and social sciences or AMLSS at ASU (07-01-2008). The AMLSS PhD degree has graduated 15 students, including 12 students who are members of underrepresented groups. Castillo-Chavez is also the Executive Director of the Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute or MTBI and The Institute for Strengthening the Understanding of Mathematics and Science or SUMS. Castillo-Chavez’ undergraduate/graduate research program (established in 1996) was recognized as a “Mathematics Program that Makes a Difference” by the American Mathematical Society in 2007 and by the 2011 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring.

PROFESSIONAL OVERVIEW

My activities focus on three areas: research, teaching and the instigation of synergistic activities through a series of local, regional, national and international activities originated and/or supported by the Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center and its two institutes MTBI[1]/SUMS[2].

The Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center   ( http://mcmsc.asu.edu/

“… strives to create a dynamic community of quantitative scientists and mathematicians, driven to contribute to the solution of problems in the biological, environmental, and social sciences. Through flexible research and cross-disciplinary programs, the MCMSC will train a new generation of scientists whose research is driven by `solution’ rather than `discipline.’ Armed with this mindset, the MCMSC will promote, support and encourage teams and faculty that do not hold a reductionist view of the world”.

MTBI’s (Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute) summer programs provide sequential research experiences at the undergraduate and graduate levels, in the field of applied mathematics and its applications to the biological and social sciences. MTBI provides research mentorship training to a limited number of faculty members who want to work at the interface of applied mathematics and theoretical and computational biology that have no prior experience in these fields.  SUMS’ (Institute for Strengthening Understanding of Mathematics and Science) mission focuses on increasing the representation of US citizens and residents in fields that require strong quantitative training.   SUMS’ Mathematics Sciences Honors Program  (MSHP) has trained around 2300 high school students from economically disadvantage backgrounds and who are residents of the State of Arizona over the past 24 years. Their training is via an intense mathematics summer experience on college mathematics but we have sometimes offered a course in mathematical biology.

 

As Executive Director of MTBI/SUMS, I work at increasing the impact of its pipeline programs (high school, college, graduate school and postdoctoral level) in order to enhance the level of participation and success of US students within the American Research Enterprise and Academia. Particular emphasis is put on the training of individuals coming from groups who are underrepresented in the mathematical sciences or in fields that demand strong background in a quantitative field. Detailed publication on the successes of these program include:

Research Interests

 

Carlos Castillo-Chavez' research program is carried out at the interface of the mathematical and natural and social sciences and puts emphasis on (i) the role of dynamic social landscapes on disease dispersal; (ii) host behavior and disease evolution, (iii) human behavior, environmental and social structures on the dynamics of addiction, (iv) complex systems (the identification of mechanisms that facilitate the social and biological factors across multiple levels of organization). Specifically, in collaboration with many researchers (graduate students, postdoctoral students and faculty), Castillo-Chavez has been involved in the study of the role of cross-immunity on the evolution and dynamics of influenza; the impact of behavioral changes, epidemiological factors, behavior and social networks on HIV and Tuberculosis dynamics; the role of epidemiological factors, vaccination, public transportation and social structure on the transmission dynamics of tuberculosis dynamics and its control; the impact of life-history vector dynamics on dengue epidemics (Mexico and Peru); the identification of time response scales and their importance in the control of foot and mouth disease outbreaks (Uruguay); the study of role of population structure and control (vaccination, isolation, quarantine and others) on the transmission dynamics of rotavirus, pneumonia and rubella; and the study of the impact of increasing levels of pathogens’ resistance to antimicrobials generated by nosocomial infections. More recently, Castillo-Chavez and collaborators have carried out theoretical work that highlights the role of disease dispersal as a key enhancing mechanism of ecological diversity. Most recently, his research efforts have focused on problems at the interface of homeland security and disease invasions (natural or deliberate) and on the development of models for the dynamics of social "diseases" that involve some form of addiction like alcohol consumption or ecstasy use with emphasis in specific groups including college populations. Work on models for the spread of ideologies and scientific information or knowledge has also been conducted in collaboration with various researchers in the past. Finally, his model of mentoring “known” as the Mathematical Biology Institute or MTBI has led to publication on pipeline models and frameworks for collaborative learning including:
