Pidge me at St. John's CollegeDepartmental Address:
With Rafael Barrio, Jose Luis Aragon and my supervisors Ruth Baker and Philip Maini, I am looking into the existence of solitons in the a reaction-diffusion model with respect to patterning on stingrays. The case of symmetric stationary states has been completed so I have been looking into the case of asymmetric stationary states due to a small constant term.
Parallel to this I have been researching the effect of stochasticity on a Turing instability in a reaction diffusion model on a growing domain. The aim of this is to produce a consistent theory of peak splitting and insertion which can be compared to the deterministic case. I will also be intending to expand on the analysis done by Edmund Crampin by moving into higher dimensions.
I am also interested in the physical applications of my maths and so hope to produce Turing patterns through CIMA experiments on a growing domain and compare these with the mathematical analysis.
