Matt Anderson

Matt's research involves on the mathematical modelling of complex networks, particularly the signalling pathways involved in cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, how these pathways interact with each other, and how they can be manipulated for desired therapeutic outcomes. Matt uses an interdisciplinary approach, collecting lab data to inform and drive modelling work, which in turn is used to focus further experimental studies.

Area of expertise:

  • Systems biology
  • Complex networks
  • Cell biology
  • Biochemistry
  • Image analysis

Benjamin Evans

Ben's research seeks to understand the emergent dynamics of neural systems and their dynamics through modelling techniques spanning multiple levels, from ion channels to networks. He is the author of PyRhO, a suite of computational tools for modelling and simulating opsins and maintains an interest in self-organisation through synaptic plasticity in response to environmental statistics. He also collaborates on several projects applying machine learning to combat Antimicrobial resistance, improve management of Type 1 Diabetes mellitus and non-invasively diagnose cancer from breath sample analysis.

Area of expertise:

  • Computational modelling
  • Neural networks
  • Machine Learning
  • High Performance Computing
  • Open and reproducible science

Jo150x150

Jo Welsman

Jo’s research career has encompassed paediatric exercise physiology, statistical modelling of complex longitudinal physiological data and researching bone health in adults.

More latterly she has worked in patient and public involvement in health services research. Her role in the Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis is to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to embed public involvement throughout the work of the Centre. Her own research will reflect on this process and aims to develop means of identifying and measuring the impact of public involvement upon the research programme.

Jo recently participated in a Researcher in Focus interview. 

Area of expertise:

  • Patient and public engagement and involvement
  • Mixed methods – qualitative and quantitative
  • Co-chair in Exeter’s Lived Experience Group

Address: Wellcome Trust Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis, University of Exeter, Living Systems Institute, EX4 4QD
