Personal profile


I am Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Roehampton, London. My vision is to examine systems related to natural life to elucidate its first principles and understand the emergent dynamics through the use of computational and biological models. I have a PhD in Modelling of Biological Complexity from UCL, 5 years postdoctoral experience at the Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) department at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, and 3 years experience in the AI industry. I model cancer at the interphase between computer science, biology and the clinic. I have been awarded for this research a fellowship usually reserved for experimental biologists from the Department of Defense of the United States, and the first Braintree Research Fellowship to develop novel AI techniques to tackle the disease. Through research, teaching and science outreach, my long-term goal is to contribute to the development of the fundamental laws of biology that will allow for the much needed exploration, understanding and optimal treatment of cancer.
