I am a researcher in the interdisciplinary field of mathematics and molecular biology. Currently I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Applied Mathematics at the Mathematics Department of University College London (UCL).


Scientific Interests
The interplay between mathematics and biology has always interested me. I believe that using good mathematical models we can capture, describe and eventually better understand biological phenomena.

Biologically I am interested in
  • Collective motion and pattern formation in e.g. sperm or myxobacteria
  • Cell migration, e.g. keratocyte movement
  • Muscle development, in particular with regards to myonuclear movement and size control
  • The cytoskeleton, particularly actin networks and the interplay with accessory molecules like myosin or cofilin
 Mathematically I am interested in
  • Non-linear PDEs and ODEs (traveling waves, bifurcations, long-term behavior and asymptotic analysis)
  • Agent-based models
  • Kinetic transport equations
  • The Micro-Macro passage from particle-based to macroscopic models
  • Numerical simulations
