Abba Gumel

Professor, Arizona State University

Abba Gumel is a Professor of Mathematics at the School of Mathematical and Statistical Science of Arizona State University. He received his PhD in Mathematics from Brunel University, England, in 1994, and has been Professor of Mathematics at the University of Manitoba, Canada (1999-2014).

Abba works in the fields of applied nonlinear dynamical systems (bifurcation theory), mathematical biology and computational mathematics. His work is primarily focused on the use of mathematical approaches to gain insight into the transmission dynamics and control of emerging and re-emerging diseases of public health importance. His recent work addresses the problem of the effect of changes in climatic variables, such as temperature and rainfall, on the ecology and epidemiology of vector-borne diseases. He has co-authored over 150 peer-reviewed research papers and three edited books.
