Luke Hatcher

Academic Background:

I am currnetly a second year MASDOC student at the university of Warwick, and am under the supervision of Charlie Elliott and Björn Stinner. Before that I completed my MMath also at the University of Warwick.

Research Interests:

My primary area of research includes phase-field models and surface PDEs, particularly those with biological applications. Currently I am considering a model for the formation of lipid rafts, where there is a coupling between the regions containing rafts and the geometry of the biomembrane.
