Research Interests

I am interested in the application and development of rigorous quantitative methods in fundamental biology research and biomedicine. I'm currently working with Matt J. Keeling on the Health Data Research UK for the Midlands project. Before that I investigated mechanisms of mRNA transcription with Daniel Hebenstreit and Bärbel Finkenstädt Rand.

My research interests also include interacting particle systems, Monte Carlo methods, large deviation theory and applications to natural and man-made systems.
