Hamza Alawiye

Hamza worked on understanding pattern formation on the surface of growing elastic materials. He is now a Heilbronn Research Fellow in Data Science at the University of Bristol.

Christoffer Alexanderson

Joins our work to model the progression of brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Georgia Brennan

Georgias research is advancing the understanding of the clearance of toxic proteins in Alzheimer’s disease by developing, and analysing, the first mathematical network models that include specific modes of clearance.

David Beers

David is studying bifurcations in the underlying topology induced by dynamic networks. Co-supervised with Professor Heather Harrington.

Pavan Chaggar

Pavan is a neuroscientist working on data analysis and modelling of brain atrophy in dementia. 

Matthew Cotton

Matthew studies how biological membranes form complex shapes, for example via proteins that curve the membrane or consume energy to generate forces. Co-supervised with Professor Ramin Golestanian.

Christian Goodbrake

Christian studies the geometry associated with deforming solids. He now works at the Willerson Center for Cardiovascular Modeling and Simulation (WCCMS), U of Texas at Austin.

Christoforos Kassianides

Andrew O’Heachteirn

Andrew is working on mathematical models of neurodegeneration that account for pathological features of the brain’s microcirculation

Prama Putra

Prama is using his expertise in the mathematical modelling of epidemiological problems to explore the graph-based evolution of toxic protein propagation in the brain.


Hadrien Oliveri

Hadrien is interested in the morphogenesis of biological systems; more specifically in the dynamic interaction between mechanics, growth and active regulation processes. He is studying the mechanical effects involved in the control of axonal development and pathfinding.

Travis Thompson

Travis is researching network-based models reducing the continuum and protein kinetics of disease propagation in the brain to a coupled high-dimensional system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations.

Zachary Wilmott

Zach is using viscoelastic and stochastic modelling methods to study various aspects of the centriole division process.

Thomas Lessinnes

Thomas is now working at Ecole Polytechnique, Université Libre de Bruxelles
