"The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool." - Richard Feynman
I am a third year PhD research student at Newcastle University having been awarded a fully funded doctoral training studentship by the UK’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). My primary research area revolves around parameter fitting for stochastic models in biological contexts. During my MRes and PhD projects I will be working with Dr Paolo Zuliani (lead supervisor, School of Computing Science) and Prof Anil Wipat (co-supervisor, Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology and School of Computing Science).
Prior to enrolling at Newcastle I obtained an undergraduate masters degree in Physics (MPhys) from Durham University, UK.
