Joseph H. Tien

Welcome! I am a professor of mathematics at Ohio State University. My research interests include modeling infectious disease dynamics, network science, data science, and the use of data-driven methods to promote informed civic engagement.

I am affiliated with the Translational Data Analytics Institute and the Division of Epidemiology. I am also co-director of the Ecology, Epidemiology, and Population Health Thematic Program of the Infectious Diseases Institute.

I am co-organizing the Applied Math Seminar. Please get in touch if you would like to give a talk.

Here is a brief CV.

I am currently teaching Ordinary Differential Equations (Math 2255).

Some courses I have taught previously are listed below:

Interested graduate students can apply to either the math department's Ph.D. program or the Master's program in mathematical biology. An overview of all graduate programs in the department can be found here.

I also work with students in the Epidemiology Division of the College of Public Health.

Undergraduates at OSU can study mathematical biology through the biology track within the mathematics major. For several years, OSU was home to the RUMBA program, which provided opportunities to pursue research in mathematical biology. The Mathematical Biosceinces Institute (MBI) also holds an annual summer program on mathematical biology for undergraduates. This latter program is open to undergraduates outside of Ohio State as well.

Current and former students and postdocs I have worked with are listed here.
