Antibiotic resistance is a major global problem that increasingly undermines our ability to fight bacterial infections.

Mathematical models can play a major role in determining factors that are important for this spread and to evaluate different treatment strategies.

In this project you will develop a mathematical model to investigate one or several of these factors, for example mutation rate variation or the presence of commensal bacteria.

The project is flexible and can be adjusted to your background and interests.
