Hamza Alawiye

Hamza worked on understanding pattern formation on the surface of growing elastic materials. He is now a Research Scientist at Deep Render.

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 interested in applications of TDA to the shape of neurons, stability of the Euler characteristic transform, and inverse problems for persistent homology.

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.

Ramón Nartallo-Kaluarachchi

Ramón is a mathematician studying whole-brain computational models and their applications in characterising brain states and the transitions between them. He is co-supervised by Alain Goriely, Renaud Lambiotte and Morten Kringelbach.

Christoforos Kassianides

Christoforos works on establishing a mechanical framework for understanding axon guidance through a combination of multi-scale models and continuum mechanics.

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.


Masha Dvoriashyna

Masha’s research is focused on applying mathematics to biological problems. In particular, she studies physiological fluid mechanics and mass transport in the eye and the brain, swimming of microorganisms and of synthetic devices. She is also interested in various broader applications of mathematical modelling in physiology, medicine and industry.

Hadrien Oliveri

Hadrien has broad interests in applied mathematics and mathematical biology. In particular, he is interested in using mathematical, physical and computational modelling to decipher the mechanisms that govern morphogenesis, the process by which livings organisms grow and acquire their shape.

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
