My doctoral work centred on extending techniques from statistical physics (probability master equation, moment-closure approximations) to model many-body processes on growing domains. The motivation for doing so was to develop methods to more accurately describe the behaviour of migratory cell populations found during embryonic development. I also enjoyed a fruitful collaboration with developmental biologists from the University of Edinburgh, modelling the migration of melanoblasts in murine embryonic development, and parameterising cell migratory processes using approximate Bayesian computation.

I am currently a postdoc in a theory group at the Harvard medical school.  I work on growing network problems.
