Dr. David Gammack joined Marymount’s Mathematics Department in August 2008. He also taught a course, “CSI Marymount,” for the First-Year Seminar DISCOVER 101.
For the past few years, Dr. Gammack has been active in undergraduate Math/Bio research and encourages any student interested in doing a math/computer simulation project to contact him
. Current research projects include root hair development in Arabidopsis Thaliana, axon growth, what to do if Zombies attack.
After his Ph.D., Dr. Gammack completed post-doctoral work at the University of Nottingham where he developed mathematical models to study the effects of the p53-gene on tumor growth. Following this, he worked for two years at the University of Michigan Medical School examining the immune response to tuberculosis infection via a variety of mathematical/computational techniques. From 2003 to 2008, he taught in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan.
Dr. Gammack is a member of the MAA (Mathematics Association of America), SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) and SMB (Society for Mathematical Biology).
