Connect with Rebecca


Professor Rebecca Hoyle is an interdisciplinary mathematician applying mathematical modelling in the life and social sciences.  She is currently researching the lifecourse determinants of early-onset multimorbidity, and the dynamics of collaborative innovation. She is curious about what makes researchers creative and why, and how collaboration and interdisciplinarity lead to new ideas. She has performed stand-up comedy inspired by her research.

Rebecca is Associate Vice-President (Interdisciplinary Research), a role she shares with Prof John Holloway.
