MathematicsAreas of interest
I am a mathematical biologist whose primary interest is in the mathematical modelling of biological and biomedical systems. I work with international leading life scientists in academic institutions and industry to formulate and solve mathematical models which are used to understand the system of interest, test hypotheses and direct future experimental/practical work.
Biological application areas  Genetic regulation of cholesterol biosynthesis, lipid metabolism, proteinprotein interaction networks in cardiovascular cell biology (myocytes and platelets), quantitative systems pharmacology, bacterial chemotaxis, tumour growth and crop growth.
Mathematical expertise  Ordinary and partial differential equations, multiscale modelling, numerical methods for ordinary and partial differential equations, agent based modelling, cellular automata, model parameterisation, dynamical systems theory, asymptotic perturbation theory.
My work is funded by the BBSRC, ESPRC, British Heart Foundation, collaborative institutions and industry.
