Research synopsisMy research lies in the area of mathematical biology, developing computational and mathematical models to describe a variety of biological processes, including pattern formation, cellular biology and cancer development. Through mathematical modelling we aim to provide an alternative approach for exploring the underlying mechansims controlling biological processes. If you are interested in undertaking a PhD, pleasecontact me regarding current projects. For more information, see my research pages.
