I am currently a 3rd year PhD student (2019-2023) at the Department of Mathematics of Imperial College London and in the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute.

I work at the interface between mathematics and biology, under the joint supervision of Anthea Monod and Dominique Bonnet. I have a keen interest in understanding connections between mathematical ideas and biological phenomena, especially anything related to shapes, colors, and movement. These beautiful connections are sometimes surprisingly relevant, despite their simplicity.

My research interests lie at the intersection of mathematical modeling, imaging, topology, geometry and a lot of programming to apply models on real data. You can have a look at my latest article that shows how tubular and membranous shapes seen in real life can be described by a concise mathematical model.
