Research interests

My research is in mathematical modelling of biological systems. My current focus is on modelling of cell population dynamics and interactions in multi-cellular environments. To understand those dynamics (e.g. proliferation and differentiation of cells) I use dynamical models and stochastic processes. My approach is data-driven; by comparison of mathematical models with experimental data through Bayesian methods, I infer the underlying biological principles of multicellular systems such as cell proliferation/differentiation in biological tissues and bacterial growth under antibiotic influence.
My particular research interests are:

  • Cell population dynamics
  • Stem cell fate choices (self-renewal and differentiation)
  • Dedifferentiation
  • Development and maintenance of biological tissues
  • Bacterial population dynamics
  • Antibiotic pharmacodynamics
  • Evolution of drug resistances
