Profile information

👋 I am a mathematician who studies cancer. I am interested in understanding when and why cancer cells (and tumours) become therapy resistant. My current research focus is on quantifying cell-to-cell interactions in cancer systems and evaluating the role that these interactions play in therapy resistance and disease progression.

🧮 I am a Wenner-Gren Fellow and a Tampere Institute for Advanced Study Fellow.
