My main interests are in deterministic modelling of embryological pattern
formation and in cancer modelling. Both these areas involve processes
interacting on multiple length and time scales, as cells respond to and
modify external signalling cues depending on their internal dynamics, which
themselves are determined by the environment. Examples of current research
projects include; investigating the spatiotemporal dynamics involved in
somitogenesis; determining bacterial colony behaviour from studying single
cell responses to chemoattractants; analysing the effects of domain growth
on the spatial patterning behaviour of a model pattern generator; studying
how the nutrient heterogeneity induced by vascular networks affect tumour
growth; modelling the cell cycle.
