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 interested in the mathematical modelling of epidemiological problems. He is now an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, Bandung Institute of Technology, West Java, Indonesia.


Masha Dvoriashyna

Masha is now a Chancellor’s Fellow (equivalent to a Lecturer) at the School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh.

Yang Liu

Yang is a Marie-Curie Fellow. His research interests include morphoelasticity, bifurcation phenomena (buckling, wrinkling, creasing, folding, etc.) in soft tissues, reduced models of film-substrate structures and liquid crystal elastomers, mechanical metamaterials, and asymptotic analysis in solid mechanics.

Thomas Lessinnes

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

Hadrien Oliveri

Hadrien now holds an ELBE postdoctoral fellowship at the Max Planck Center for Systems Biology, Dresden.

Travis Thompson

Travis is now Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Texas Tech University.

Zachary Wilmott

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