I am a researcher at the University of York. My background is in Mathematical Physics but my interests are now in applying computational and mathematical techniques to interesting problems, mostly in Biology. My interests are in collective motion (particularly in interaction networks and the role of noise) and microbiology (particularly in metabolism, spatial structure and plasmid dynamics) as well as modelling naval conflicts and glycosylation.
I am always interested in receiving applications from students wishing to apply computational and mathematical techniques to interesting problems.
