Mathematical Biology research in Birmingham is strongly integrated with experimental research, medicine and healthcare.
The research interests of the members of the group are given below.
Dr Jeevanjyoti Chakraborty
Research interests include plant biomechanics, energy storage devices, and electrokinetic transport using fundamental principles from fluid and solid mechanics, electromechanics, and various forms of transport phenomena.
Dr Rosemary Dyson
Lecturer in Applied Mathematics
Mathematical modelling; biomechanics; thin liquid films; fibre-reinforced fluids.
Dr David Smith
Lecturer in Applied Mathematics & Birmingham Science City Fellow
Microscale biological fluid dynamics, especially in fertility, health and disease, examples including sperm motiliy, cilia driven flow, mucus layers in lungs and digestive tract, and the fluid mechanics of biopolymers. Computational methods for modelling very viscous flows, especially boundary integral methods. Applications of mathematics and computational analysis in medicine and biology, including `steroidobolomics', digestion, the immune system and biodiversity..
Dr Sara Jabbari
Birmingham Fellow and MRC Biomedical Informatics Fellow
Mathematical modelling, particularly applied to biological systems, e.g. gene regulation networks; the use of asymptotic methods to analyse and simplify mathematical models.
The main focus of mathematical biology research in Birmingham is multiscale modelling of a variety of biological and medical systems, areas of interest including, but not limited to:
