I'm a Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Biology at the University of Bath. I work on a diverse range of areas of Biology in which randomness plays an important role.
I have studied the migration behaviours of cells in order to understand early embryonic diseases and the collective behaviour of locusts in order to help prevent outbreaks. I have worked to understand how ants make their descisions as a group and modelled how parasites can effectively evade the immune system.
I have developed frameworks for better representing evolutionary game theory and tools for tracking the movement patterns of bacteria. I have even tried to demonstrate how birds' eggs and zebrafish get their beautiful patterns.
Who knew that Maths could be so useful?
