I am a research fellow (supported by the Royal Society of Edinburgh) in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.

My research interests span many areas of statistical physics - an area of theoretical physics which deals with randomness and chance in physical processes. Recently, I have been also working in biophysics, in particular on problems related to microbial evolution and cancer.  

In my research I use computer simulations and analytic calculations. Recently, I have started doing “wet” laboratory experiments with bacteria.

You can read more about my research following the links on top of this page.

Internship/Mphys Projects/PhD

If you are interested in an Mphys project under my supervision, please visit the Mphys Project webpage and follow the link to Mphys Project Descriptions for the list of available projects. If you would like to do a project that is not included in the booklet but is related to my research, please contact me.

If you are an Edinburgh undergraduate student interested in an internship under my supervision, please contact me to discuss possible projects and funding opportunities.

For PhD opportunities, please see this website, and this one. Available projects are listed at the bottom of this page. If you would like a different project (as long as it is not completely tangential to my research interests), please contact me.
