Biographical Info

Dr. Krone is trained as a mathematician and has been working at the interface of mathematics and biology for over 20 years, including research on theoretical population genetics (especially coalescent theory), the ecology and evolution of bacteria and viruses, the spread of antibiotic resistance genes on plasmids, and epidemiology. A central goal in his work is to uncover the effects of various types of structure that influence interactions between individuals during evolutionary, ecological, and epidemiological dynamics. He uses both stochastic models and differential equations in this work, often tethering the theory to empirical data generated by his biological colleagues.
