Belén García Pascual

I am a mathematician doing a PhD in Biomathematics in the Stochastic Biology Group at the University of Bergen, Norway. My supervisors are Iain Johnston and Jan Nordbotten. I have a master in Topology from the University of Bergen under the supervision of Morten Brun, and a bachelor in Mathematics from Complutense University of Madrid supervised by Luis Giraldo Suárez.

My research

I work with mathematical models (deterministic and stochastic) to explain why throughout evolution, mitochondria and plastids have ended up with the genes they do under different environmental dynamics. I also explore multi-scale, evolutionary systems using computational models. Other research work focuses on the use of tools from topological data analysis to compare weighted graphs of progression pathways. I have also done research in generative artificial intelligence using large language models (LLMs) for synthetic tabular data in healthcare.

Research interests:

Topological data analysis, mathematical modelling, systems biology, biostatistics, phenotypic plasticity, LLMs, synthetic data.



Perhaps my biggest hobbies are plants, as I enjoy a lot gardening,  indoor plants and plant shops.  I also love The Lord of the Rings, classic movies (especially with Audrey Hepburn or Cary Grant), fashion, the northern lights and rock and (post-)punk music. The pictures below are of my dearest rabbit Dorothy ❤️
