I am a Birmingham and MRC Fellow in mathematical biology. Specialising in the modelling of gene regulation networks using both numerical and analytical approaches, my work spans a range of biological applications, from drug development to bioenergy to understanding bacterial behaviour. My MRC fellowship gave me the opportunity to gain experimental training in order to generate the complementary data required to adopt a truly interdisciplinary approach to mathematical modelling in biology.
Expertise: sensitivity analysis, Systems Biology, stress responses, Deterministic modelling of gene regulation networks, dynamics and control of biological networks, parameter estimation, Bacillus subtilis, Mathematical modelling
Modelling of the general stress response activation cascade of sigB in B. subtilis in response to starvation.
