Jack Twomey

Jack Twomey is an MSc student in Modern Applications of Mathematics at the University of Bath, having also graduated from Bath with a BSc in Mathematical Sciences. Despite having an undergraduate background of mostly probability and pure mathematics, in undertaking a more applied MSc he has developed a strong interest in more applied areas of mathematics, particularly in Mathematical Biology.


His MSc project will be focusing on stochastic modelling of bimolecular reactions, particularly with implementation of stochastic simulation algorithms. He is interested in investigating the ‘reaction-radius/reaction-rate’ model for bimolecular reactions, and in applying this to different dimensions and incorporating geminate recombination of molecules within the system.
