  • Mathematical physiology
  • Nonlinear dynamical systems

Postgraduate supervision

Projects on offer

  • Asthma and the Lung. How do lungs work, and what causes asthma? (Thesis Project)
  • Saliva secretion. How is saliva secreted? That's a good question, and I'm glad you asked. (Thesis Project)
  • Calcium dynamics. Why does intracellular calcium oscillate? How? What are the mechanisms? Should we even care? (Thesis Project)
  • GnRH neurons. What controls electrical bursting in GnRH neurons? What role does calcium play? How is this related to hormone secretion? (Thesis Project)
  • Interstitial cells of Cajal. These control the contraction of gastrointestinal smooth muscle, but what does calcium do in these cells? (Thesis Project)
