Research in Mathematical Biology and Chemistry develops cutting-edge mathematical approaches to study challenging problems in these fields. The group has expertise in biological fluid dynamics (swimming sperm, bacteria and algae), chemical statistics (food traceability), mathematical ecology (fisheries and stochastic dynamics), mathematical physiology (wound healing), mathematical virology (virus assembly using symmetry) and systems biology (complexity and emergent phenomena).
