Dr. Sabrina Streipert is an applied mathematician analysing the effects of different time scales on population dynamics and the spreading of diseases. After finishing her PhD in Applied Mathematics at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in US, she became a Research Associate at the University of Madison-Wisconsin in the Centre for Sleep and Consciousness, working on the mathematical theory of consciousness. In Otcober 2017, she started as a Lecturer at the Centre for Applications in Natural Resource Mathematics in the School of Mathematics and Physics, where she is currently involved in using her modelling skills to assess the Barramundi fish population.

Research Interests

  • Dynamic Equations
    The theory of time scales can be applied to many areas due to its nature of generalising the discrete and continuous time domain. Applications that I am specifically interested in are population dynamics and disease spreading.
  • Data Science in Population Dynamics
    My recent research project on assessing the Barramundi fish population in Queensland combined my theoretical modelling skills and gave me the opportunity to use statistical and data scientific tools to relate the model to actual data.
