Dr. Wandi Ding is the Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Middle Tennessee State University. She serves as faculty for the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Computational Science program, as well as the Honors College. She is an active learner and user for SIMIODE, which is a Community of Practice dedicated to using modeling to teach differential equations.



Dr. Ding's research interests include mathematical biology, computational biology, optimal control, mathematical modeling, ordinary and partial differential equations, difference equations, agent/individual-based modeling, and hybrid systems with applications to population dynamics, disease modeling and control, natural resource management, and systems biology (integrated mathematical oncology). She is also interested in deep learning (convolutional neural network) and quantum biology. See Research for details.

Dr. Ding finished her Post Doctoral Research with Drs. Suzanne Lenhart and Louis Gross on optimal control of spatial ecology and natural resource management. See the Grid Computing Project for Ecological Modeling and Spatial Control.


Dr. Ding served as President (2011-12), Vice President (2009-10), and Secretary (2008-09) for the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi (PKP) at MTSU chapter. We got "Chapter of Excellence" 2009-10, and “Chapter of Merit Award” 2008-09.
