About me

Professor Jianhong Wu is a University Distinguished Research Professor and Senior Canada Research Chair in industrial and applied mathematics at York University. He is also the NSERC Industrial Research Chair in vaccine mathematics, modelling, and manufacturing. His expertise includes dynamical systems and bifurcation theory that develops methodologies to identify long-term dynamic scenarios of an epidemiological system. He also pioneered a neural network architecture for pattern recognition in high dimensional data. He is also known for his efforts in developing reciprocal linkages and collaborations between public health and mathematics, globally. Since the 2003 SARS outbreak, Dr. Wu has led multiple national teams to develop mathematical technologies to address key public health issues relevant to emerging infectious diseases including SARS, pandemic influenza, Ebola, antimicrobial drug resistance, and Lyme disease.
