Area of Research

My area of research is Mathematical Biology. My actual research focuses on: 

  • The analysis of transport equations and advection-diffusion equations 
    and their application to chemotaxis. 
  • Modelling of cancer cell movement in tissues
  • Optimization of radiation treatment schedules for cancer
  • Modelling of forest fire spread.
  • Classification of spatial patterns generated by PDE.
