I shall introduce some research from our current programme. This is focused on establishing and testing a theoretical framework that enables us to understand invasion, persistence, scale and variability of epidemics within changing agricultural landscapes. The framework is used to identify methods that improve the efficiency of disease control and reduce the risk of failure. The research involves a synthesis of epidemiological theory, population genetics, landscape ecology and economic modelling as well as a complementary experimental programme to test models. Mathematically, I shall select some problems involving non-linear optimization, incorporation and interpretation of stochasticity in models, percolation and parameter estimation.
