Research overview

I am interested in mathematical biology, and in particular mathematical modelling of cell population dynamics during development and cancer. In particular, I have been investigating the emergence of phenotypic heterogeneity in cancer and patter formation in development. I have been focussing on continuous, deterministic models of time- and space-dependent population dynamics. These translate mathematically into systems of non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs), which I investigate both analytically and numerically.
