I'm a math biologist interested in developing realistic mathematical and computational models of biological systems, that can provide novel, experimentally verifiable insights. I model cancer treatments and cell systems using whatever tool is appropriate for the problem at hand (which often means a combination of ODEs, ABMs, and PDEs!)

Current Research

Cancer vaccines

The immune system can be modulated to kill cancer cells. I look at how vaccines can be leveraged to achieve this.

PD-1/PD-L1 regulation

PD-L1 is a molecule upregulated by tumours that inhibits immune activity. I study how this cross-talk shapes the overall immune response.

Mitochondrial dynamics

Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell and when things go awry the results are bad. I examine how the organisation of mitochondria in the heart affects cardiac performance.
