My doctoral work centred on extending techniques from statistical physics (probability master equation, moment-closure approximations) to model many-body processes on growing domains. The motivation for doing so was to develop methods to more accurately describe the behaviour of migratory cell populations found during embryonic development. I also enjoyed a fruitful collaboration with developmental biologists from the University of Edinburgh, modelling the migration of melanoblasts in murine embryonic development and parameterising cell migratory processes using approximate Bayesian computation.
I currently work on modeling dynamical systems on growing networks. In particular, I am studying the scenario in which the network growth is coupled to the behavior of the dynamical system situated on the network.
