Background


I studied BSc Mathematics at the University of Manchester where I graduated in 2015. In 2016, I completed a Masters in Mathematical Modelling at University College London. Areas of mathematics I enjoyed most were Evolutionary Game Theory and Population Genetics and Mathematical Ecology.

Research


During my Masters I carried out a research project in which I modelled the aggregation of von Willebrand Factor proteins in the blood vessels using probabilistic models. Additionally, I assessed how particular drugs such as statins effect the length of these protein structures.
