LARAMIE — More than 40 graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and professors from around the world have gathered on the University of Wyoming campus.

They are exploring how mathematical models can be used in the fields of epidemiology and ecology.

The Rocky Mountain Mathematics Consortium has held a summer school at UW for 32 years. But this year's two-week gathering is the first to explore ways math can be applied to research on the spread of disease and on the interaction of living organisms and the environment.

Michael Dillon is a UW Department of Zoology and Physiology assistant professor.

He says the event brings together biologists who want to learn more about math, and mathematicians who are interested in ecology and epidemiology.

He hopes the event will help the two groups communicate better.
