MMath (Durham), PhD
Past staff member
I am a temporary lecturer based here within the Mathematics department also working within the York Centre for Complex Systems Analysis. I have been working on mathematical models for viral capsid structure and assembly. My supervisor is Reidun Twarock and I have also collaborated with Anne Taormina, Cristian Micheletti and Adam Zlotnick among others. Please see my publications list for some examples of my work.
Structural constraints on the three-dimensional geometry of simple viruses: case studies of a new predictive tool. Acta Crystallographica Section A: Foundations of Crystallography. 69(2). 2013.
Structural transformations in quasicrystals induced by higher dimensional lattice transitions. Proceedings of the Royal Society A.. 2012.
