Mathematical Virology
Lecturer
Research InterestsI am a Lecturer in the Departments of Mathematics and Biology, based at the York Centre for Complex Systems Analysis. My PhD was in the field of theoretical particle cosmology, with particular interests in Clifford algebras and the role of symmetries in particle physics, cosmology and general relativity. I am interested in the role of symmetry in virus structure and assembly, as well other topics in virology, group theory and applications thereof. I teach "Applications of Group Theory to Virology", "Numerical Techniques for Modelling Biological Systems" and "Vector Calculus" in Mathematics and "Principles of Molecular Virology" and "Science Communication" in Biology. I coordinate the Pint of Science Festival in York (http://pintofscience.co.uk/events/york/), and am a panellist for the Equality Challenge Unit (Athena Swan/Race Charter), as well as being on the Maths Equality and Good Practice Committee.Teaching
