I am interested in understanding cancer evolution and identifying the processes that lead to uncurable disease. In my DPhil, I am looking at the impact of temporal fluctuations in tumoural microenvironment on its evolution. I am supervised by Prof. Philip Maini and Prof. Helen Byrne from WCMB and Dr. Robert Gatenby and Dr. Alexander Anderson from Moffitt Cancer Center, USA.
