My research focuses on developing and applying novel mathematical, computational and statistical methodologies and modelling frameworks for investigating developmental biology systems at the cell and tissue level. I develop biologically realistic models that, used in tandem with experimental investigations, can provide fundamental insights into key biological mechanisms. An important aspect of my work is therefore multidisciplinary collaboration with theoreticians, life scientists and clinicians both within Oxford and further afield.
I also play a key role in QBIOX (www.qbiox.ox.ac.uk), an MPLS-funded initiative to develop quantitative biology in Oxford.
