Modelling the development of stem cells as they differentiate and grow into organs/ organoids. How can a single cell (egg) divide and develop into the diversity of cells needed to create the differentiated organs and tissues that
make up our bodies? 

General interest in creating computational models to answer biological questions.

I am motivated and driven by biological questions

Previous projects covered topics — evolution of: diverse skeleton phenotypes, strategic behaviour in collective-risk games (aka climate game), mafia behaviour, and `maintenance of sex’ in a predator-prey system
