Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Dundee.

My undergraduate degree was obtained in Theoretical Physics from University College Dublin, Ireland.

In 2009 I then obtained a PhD in Mathematical Biology at the University of Oxford working under the supervision of Prof. Philip Maini. Afterwards I undertook a post-doc also at Oxford working with Prof. Ruth Baker.

In 2012 I moved to the University of Dundee to take a up a position as lecturer.

I am Advisor of Studies and Admissions Tutor for mathematics.

Research interests

I have active research projects across a range of biological application areas that include:

  • patterning in embryo development
  • cell-based modelling
  • diabetes
  • intercellular signalling
  • tumour growth

A common theme across these disparate areas of biology is the use of mathematical models to interpret experimental observations and make quantitative, testable predictions about real biological systems. In order to achieve these aims he uses a range of mathematical tools and collaborates closely with experimental colleagues. 


I am currently module leader for Mathematical Physiology (MA52003), Mathematical Biology (MA32009) and the final year project modules (MA40001, MA40002 and MA50001).
