DPhil student in Mathematical Biology at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford

Stipendiary Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford (Sept. 2023)


Hi there! I'm Sam and I'm currently studying for a DPhil (PhD) in mathematics at the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology at the University of Oxford, where I am fortunate to be supervised by Professor Philip Maini and Professor Ruth Baker. My DPhil project concerns the construction and analysis of mathematical models of collective cell migration, using the cranial neural crest as a model paradigm. In my spare time, I also conduct work on percolation theory and interacting particle systems. 

Prior to arriving in Oxford, I studied for a MASt in Applied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge (Gonville and Caius College), and a BSc in Theoretical Physics at the University of Edinburgh. 

I am always keen to talk about maths, so please reach out if you would like to chat!
