My research is primarily in the general area of biological and biomedical applications of mathematics. Topics I am actively pursuing include: 

Microbiological fluid dynamics including muco-ciliary dynamics and spermatozoa dynamics.

Mathematical and biological aspects of reaction diffusion systems. These range from mathematically based stability studies and to modelling transport phenomena on biologically realistic domains, captured by imaging.

Pattern formation mechanisms especially on growing domains and involving time delays.

Ocular surface fluid dynamics and solute transport

Models of cell movement, signalling and interaction.

Modelling tumours and chemotherapy scheduling 

I am keen to hear from well-qualified, prospective DPhil students and have a number of projects in the above areas which I am enthusiastic to develop. I am also keen to hear from potential academic visitors; some highlights of my interests can be found in the research gallery.
