I am an applied mathematician at the School of Mathematics & Statistics, UNSW Australia. I use dynamical systems, stochastic modelling and queueing theory, amongst other techniques to develop mathematical models, algorithms and solutions to real world problems in medicine and biology.


Research Opportunities

There are opportunities for students and researchers to be involved in an ARC-funded Discovery Project titled "The mathematics of stochastic transport and signalling in cells". The aim of the project is to develop new stochastic mathematical models of the dynamics of protein transport and cell signalling. This work is in collaboration with Maria Vlasiou and Marko Boon of the Technical University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The mathematics will link macro scale biological observations to micro scale molecular movements to characterise the relative role that different components and processes play. Expected outcomes are robust mathematical analyses of the transient dynamics of closed, finite capacity queueing networks and biological insight into the major control mechanisms in cellular insulin signalling. A major objective is the development of methods to quantitatively compare the time courses of stochastic measurements with the outputs of stochastic mathematical models, with a view to driving parameter inference and model selection in these systems.

Please get in contact if you are interested.
