I am Professor of Mathematical Biology in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield. I develop and apply mathematical models to study biological systems, in particular how tissue-level behaviour emerges from cell-level processes in the embryo. I am part of the Mathematical Biology research group.

I was a Vice-Chancellorâ€™s Fellow in the same School from 2015 to 2019, transitioning to Lecturer in 2019, Senior Lecturer in 2022, and Professor in 2024. Before moving to Sheffield, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, based in the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology. I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Cambridge and an MSc in Mathematical Modelling & Scientific Computing, and DPhil in mathematics, from the University of Oxford.
