Dr Massimo Cavallaro

Job Title
Research Fellow
Research Interests

Biology entered a new phase, where rigorous quantitative methods are integrated in both fundamental research and biotechnology extensively. On my end, I currently use stochastic modeling to investigate the mechanisms of mRNA transcription with
Dr. Daniel Hebenstreit
Prof. Bärbel Finkenstädt Rand
and am funded by the BBSRC.

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