I'm currently enrolled on a four year MRes/PhD at the Centre of Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology (CoMPLEX) at UCL, where my research has focused predominantly on the mathematics of biological networks and complex diseases. (Click here for more details of my research at CoMPLEX).
Prior to working at UCL I completed a MMath at Oxford University, where I focused on a large range of topics in both pure and applied mathematics, such as mathematical finance, climate dynamics and functional analysis before coming to the conclusion that mathematical biology was the most intriguing, enigmatic and important field that I could pursue. I also spent some time as a lab based research assistant in Cell Biology at the MRC-LMB in Cambridge, where I worked on sexual determination in the social amoeba dictyostelium discoideum.
My mathematical research interests include:
Modelling network dynamics and topology, discrete mathematics, complex systems, information theory, stochastic and continuous dynamical systems, statistical learning, geometric networks, time evolving networks and Markov decision processes.
My biological research interests include:
The molecular mechanisms of complex diseases, primarily facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD, click here for more details of my research into this condition), breast cancer and psoriasis, signal processing in biological networks and the analysis of microarray data.
