I am a post-doctoral research associate with the St John's college Research Centre.
Building on my background in applied mathematics I have been developing a wide range of theoretical and computational tools that allow us to better understand a variety of biological systems.
My DPhil research project, in collaboration with the Integrated Mathematical Oncology department at the Moffitt Cancer Centre focussed on the role of tumour-stroma interactions in the emergence of environment-mediated drug resistance. I used population dynamics and spatially resolved models as a hypothesis-testing platform to facilitate communication with experimentalists, and to suggest further experimental routes.
I am part of an interdisciplinary effort between the Molnár group at Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics, and Prof. Maini at the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology supported by St John's College Research Centre to study cortex development and evolution. We want to understand the finely-tuned processes that take place during neurogenesis, and to map the divergent evolutionary trajectories that give rise to differences between species.
I am keen on contributing to the advancement of our understanding of the complexity of the human body and using mathematical and computational approaches to make functional predictions of biological processes. I enjoy working in close contact with experimentalists and I look forward to learn more about development and evolution.
