Research interests

  • Investigating information processing in biological systems with information theory.
  • Kinetic models of biological systems particularly using stochastic, approximate stochastic and hybrid approaches.
  • Models of calcium signalling and calcium-dependent proteins in non-excitable cells.
  • Method development, e.g., the software Copasi and different R packages for the study of biochemical processes.
