We are mathematician-physicists with interests in the Natural world. Our work abuts topics in engineering, statistics and computer science.
We study topics in (bio)energetics, inference and their interface. In bioenergetics we mostly study mitochondrial variability, in inference we investigate topics in public health and at the interface we are interested in how energetic constraints can limit information processing.
Our work thus requires tools from stochastic processes, signal processing, network analysis, algorithmics and informatics.

Tax payers support almost all our research and can learn about it here in our group blog.
We also write blog articles on new papers in mitochondrial physiology/genetics that we find interesting here.

In 2012 I had the idea that Imperial could have a kind of Advanced Hackspace. I wrote a letter outlining my ideas. Following positive responses, and with the encouragement of Peter Childs, I wrote a grant for our Advanced Hackspace in 2013. Since 2014 this Advanced Hackspace is now active under the name ICAH and members of the Imperial community can join. Explore it here. This is a network of spaces, supported by skilled staff, where members of the college can make their ideas happen. In 2017 Imperial opened a dedicated Advanced Hackspace facility at its White City Campus. I'm now on the academic management team of the space.
I co-founded, with Caroline Colijn and Mauricio Barahona, the EPSRC Centre for the Mathematics of Precision Healthcare
It has a linked Mathematics in Medicine grouping.
