My research focusses on understanding how complex behaviour in biological, physical and artificial systems arises. Aside from the pleasure of simply finding out how something works, I use this understanding to predict and guide the behaviour of these systems, and to engineer similar behaviours into other distinct systems. A key feature of my research is its interdisciplinary nature: working with scientists from different disciplines to understand the complex systems that exist in their fields.

I currently hold a University of Nottingham Advanced Research Fellowship, and am developing multiscale modelling approaches which are able to efficiently model complex systems containing many millions of components and scales of interaction.
