Biophysical models in humans and nature

Biophysical models are developed to represent key processes in humans and nature, from the electrophysiology of the human heart, to calcium carbonate skeleton production of coral reefs.In this project, we will explore biophysical model development across multiple fields, to identify commonalities, strengths and weaknesses, and identify analysis techniques ubiquitous in one field that can be immediately exploited to improve science in another field.

Moving boundary problems in mathematical biology

Invasion of biological cells or ecological populations involves moving fronts that invade into previously unoccupied regions of space. Such moving fronts are driven by a combination of motility, such as random diffusion, and proliferation, such as logistic growth. Understanding how best to model such invasive fronts is important as moving fronts of cells are associated with wound healing and cancer progression and moving fronts in ecology are associated with the spreading of weeds and invasive species.Previously both continuum and discrete …
