I'm interested in the use of both ideas and techniques from statistical and soft-condensed matter physics to study Biological systems.  In particular, I am currently working on systems in which the use of differential geometry is helpful, such as the morphology of cells and tissues.

I am currently the Simons Fellow at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), part of the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research, in Bangalore, India.

Previously, I was a postdoc with Prof. Matthew Turner at the University of Warwick, and with  Dr. Marc Barthelemy at the Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) part of the CEA in Saclay, just outside of Paris.  Before that, I did my PhD at the University of Manchester with Prof. Alan McKane, and worked in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) at both Citigroup and Barclays Capital, in London.

For articles which rely on simulation, the code can be found here, along with some other (hopefully) useful pieces of information regarding scientific programming using C++ / Python / Mathematica.
