I am broadly interested in utilising mathematical modelling to further our understanding of disease states and aid in the development of new therapies. Currently, I am focusing on discerning the mechanisms driving viral production rates early in HIV infection and following reactivation from latency. During my PhD studies, I modelled the effects of drugs on electrical signalling in the heart, working to better understand the drug characteristics that differentiate between drugs that have a pro- or anti-arrhythmic effect when administered to patients.
