Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I can offer projects in the area of biophysics/statistical physics. In particular, I am interested in exploring links between the physics of bacteria and biological evolution, and genetic heterogeneity in tumours. These projects can be either theoretical, experimental, or both. Theoretical projects will combine statistical-physics modelling of genetically diverse cellular populations, cell-cell and cell-environment interactions, and will involve molecular-dynamics simulations on multiple scales: from biomolecules to individual bacterial cells to macroscopic populations of cells. Experimental research will focus on how physical properties of bacteria and their environment affect fixation probabilities of drug-resistant mutants. All projects will involve collaborations with world-leading researchers from Edinburgh, Europe, and USA.

If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.
