Tarek Acila


I am Tarek Acila, a second-year PhD student under the supervision of Dr Björn StinnerLink opens in a new window and Dr Thomas HudsonLink opens in a new window. I am generally interested in applied mathematics, specifically, mathematical modelling, theory and application of partial differential equations, and their numerical analysis.

Research Interests

Currently, I am interested in cell membranesLink opens in a new window, their mechanics and membraneLink opens in a new window-cortexLink opens in a new window systems. We aim to derive continuum models governing such systems. These are PDEs that require a thorough well-posedness analysis and a numerical treatment to derive results out of the model. A wide range of mathematical techniques can be used for this purpose depending on the type of the model, the assumptions and the geometry.

A specific phenomenon we are working on is Inverse Blebbing: an invagination of the membrane into the cytoplasm environment. Though, we hope the model can be extended to a wider range of biological phenomenons that require the cortex-membrane harmony.
