If you are interested in doing your master project or your PhD with me, please contact me directly or click here for the PhD projects page of the School. Available projects focus on spatiotemporal patterns of the intracellular calcium concentration in atrial myocytes, novel dynamics in both deterministic and noisy threshold models and on the dynamics of the fundamental building blocks of intracellular calcium dynamics (puffs and sparks).

I am an Assistant Professor (tenured) in Applied Mathematics at the University of Nottingham where I am affiliated with the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology. My main research interest lies in the field of Mathematical Cell Physiology and Computational Cell Biology with a strong emphasis on intracellular calcium dynamics. I held a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to study stochastic and spatiotemporal aspects of intracellular calcium signalling. During my postdoc with Stephen Coombes at Nottingham, I studied intracellular calcium waves, while I investigated the generation of elemental events governing intracellular calcium responses during my PhD and postdoc with Martin Falcke. I obtained a physics degree from the University of Marburg, where I specialised in theoretical physics.
