Biography

Carlos Castillo-Chavez is a Regents Professor , a Joaquin Bustoz Jr. Professor of Mathematical Biology, and a Distinguished Sustainability Scientist at Arizona State University. His research program is at the interface of the mathematical and natural and social sciences with emphasis on (i) the role of dynamic social landscapes on disease dispersal; (ii) the role of environmental and social structures on the dynamics of addiction and disease evolution, and (iii) Dynamics of complex systems at the interphase of ecology, epidemiology and the social sciences. Castillo-Chavez or C-C has co-authored over two hundred publications (see goggle scholar citations ), edited several volumes of research articles, and co-authored a textbook in Mathematical Biology in 2001 (second edition in 2012). He edited a volume (with Tom Banks ) on the use of mathematical models in homeland security published in SIAM's Frontiers in Applied Mathematics Series (2003); co-edited volumes in the Series Contemporary Mathematics entitled “ Mathematical Studies on Human Disease Dynamics: Emerging Paradigms and Challenges ” (American Mathematical Society, 2006) and Mathematical and Statistical Estimation Approaches in Epidemiology (Springer-Verlag, 2009) highlighting his interests in the applications of mathematics in emerging and re-emerging diseases . C-C is a member of the Santa Fe Institute's external faculty, adjunct professor at Cornell University, and contributor, as a member of the Steering Committee of the “Committee for the Review of the Evaluation Data on the Effectiveness of NSF-Supported and Commercially Generated Mathematics Curriculum Materials,” to a 2004 NRC report . The CBMS workshop “Mathematical Epidemiology with Applications” lectures delivered by C. Castillo-Chavez and F. Brauer in 2011 have been published by SIAM in 2013. C-C is the founding director of the Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center and the graduate field in applied mathematics in the life and social sciences or AMLSS at ASU (07-01-2008). The AMLSS PhD degree has graduated 19 students, including 14 students who are members of underrepresented groups. C-C is also the Executive Director of the Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute or MTBI and The Institute for Strengthening the Understanding of Mathematics and Science or SUMS . MTBI, established by C-C in 1996, was recognized as a “ Mathematics Program that Makes a Difference ” by the American Mathematical Society in 2007; MTBI was also recognized wit a 2011 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring . SUMS’ efforts were recognized with a Presidential Mentorship Award in 2002. Castillo-Chavez’ efforts resulted in the establishment of the David Blackwell and Richard Tapia Distinguished Lecture Series in 2000 and the co-establishment of the David Blackwell and Richard Tapia Award two years later with David Eisenbud . C-C spent 18 years at Cornell University (1985-2003) in the department of Biological Statistics and Computational Biology ( BSCB ) and over his last few years with a joint appointment in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics ( TAM ).  C-C’s recognitions include two White House Awards: Presidential Faculty Fellowship Award in 1992 and a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring in 1997; the 2002 Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) Distinguished Scientist Award ; and the 2003 Richard Tapia Award . C-C is the12th recipient of the American Mathematical Society Distinguished Public Service Award (01-14-2010).  In addition, Castillo-Chavez held a Stanislaw M. Ulam Distinguished Scholar position at the Center for Nonlinear Studies ( CNLS ) in Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2003. He was named honorary professor at Xi'an Jiaotong University in China (2004) and honorary professor at the School of Public Health, East Tennessee State University (2010). He has held a VIV appointments at Institute for Mathematics and its Applications or IMA (1998), a Cátedra Patrimonial, Instituto de Investigaciones en Matemáticas Aplicadas y Sistemas ( IIMAS ), Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (1998-1999), and visiting professorships at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, England (2003), the Harvard School of Public Health (2012) and an Martin Luther King Jr. Professor at MIT (2012-2013); was in residence at the Poincare Institute in the spring of 2013. He has been elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS),  the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics , the American College of Epidemiology and Founding Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (11-01-2012). C-C is the recipient of the 2007 AAAS Mentor award ; has had 33 PhD students (including 17 US Latinos and 12 women); has mentored 25 postdoctoral researchers; and co-mentored over 200 undergraduates in research projects. C-C past committee memberships include: the Arizona Governor’s P-20 Council’s Mathematics Alignment Team in 2008-09; the advisory boards of the Statistical and Applied Mathematics Sciences Institute ( SAMSI ), Banff’s International Research Station ( BIRS ) , and the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis ( NIMBioS ); co-director of the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences Alliance (2010-2012) . He has been appointed (2013) Director of STEM Programs for Underrepresented Minorities, ASU, a position that supports STEM synergistic activities that increase access, excellence and impact at the four ASU campuses.  He is a member of the National Research Council’s Board of Higher Education and Workforce or BHEW (2009-2016); serves in President Obama’s Committee on the National Medal of Science (2010-2015). He is the 17th recipient of the SIAM Prize for Distinguished Service to the Profession, which will be awarded in 2015 in Beijing, China.

Research Interests

 

Carlos Castillo-Chavez' research program is carried out at the interface of the mathematical and natural and social sciences and puts emphasis on (i) the role of dynamic social landscapes on disease dispersal; (ii) host behavior and disease evolution, (iii) human behavior, environmental and social structures on the dynamics of addiction, (iv) complex systems (the identification of mechanisms that facilitate the social and biological factors across multiple levels of organization). Specifically, in collaboration with many researchers (graduate students, postdoctoral students and faculty), Castillo-Chavez has been involved in the study of the role of cross-immunity on the evolution and dynamics of influenza; the impact of behavioral changes, epidemiological factors, behavior and social networks on HIV and Tuberculosis dynamics; the role of epidemiological factors, vaccination, public transportation and social structure on the transmission dynamics of tuberculosis dynamics and its control; the impact of life-history vector dynamics on dengue epidemics (Mexico and Peru); the identification of time response scales and their importance in the control of foot and mouth disease outbreaks (Uruguay); the study of role of population structure and control (vaccination, isolation, quarantine and others) on the transmission dynamics of rotavirus, pneumonia and rubella; and the study of the impact of increasing levels of pathogens’ resistance to antimicrobials generated by nosocomial infections. More recently, Castillo-Chavez and collaborators have carried out theoretical work that highlights the role of disease dispersal as a key enhancing mechanism of ecological diversity. Most recently, his research efforts have focused on problems at the interface of homeland security and disease invasions (natural or deliberate) and on the development of models for the dynamics of social "diseases" that involve some form of addiction like alcohol consumption or ecstasy use with emphasis in specific groups including college populations. Work on models for the spread of ideologies and scientific information or knowledge has also been conducted in collaboration with various researchers in the past. Finally, his model of mentoring “known” as the Mathematical Biology Institute or MTBI has led to publication on pipeline models and frameworks for collaborative learning including:
