Dr. Wandi Ding is a professor and an M.S. Graduate Program advior in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Middle Tennessee State University. She serves as faculty for the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Computational and Data Science program, as well as the Honors College. She is an active learner and user for SIMIODE (Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations), which is a Community of Practice dedicated to using modeling to teach differential equations, and she serves as Board of Contributing Advisors for SIMIODE (2017 – current), and she is the co-director for SIMIODE EXPO 2023.  She works together with Dr. Judith Iriarte-Gross to serve as co-presidents for the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) Tennessee Chapter (2021-current). 



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. She is also interested in deep learning applied to biological applications 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.
