Laboratory / Department Populations
We study populations and quantitative theories relevant to them. Populations exhibit phenomena that are difficult to deduce from the characteristics of an isolated member. For example, the prevalence of a disease in a population is only indirectly connected to the course of disease in an individual. To develop concepts helpful for understanding populations, we study concrete problems in demography, epidemiology, ecology and population genetics
