In this talk, I will make the case for why and how mathematicians should consider using their quantitative skills to work on biological problems. We will discuss how these problems might be extremely important to work on, but also why one should be very careful with its ethical implications. I will share my experience so far in my PhD, researching (covid) epidemic and evolutionary dynamics, and more broadly being involved in the field of epidemic modelling, where mathematicians now have become involved with public-health policy and science communication.

This talk is part of the C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) series.
