Jamie Walker

Dr Jamie Walker is a Medical Research Council Research Fellow with interests in complex dynamical processes in neuroscience and neuroendocrinology. Using a multidisciplinary approach, combining predictive mathematical modelling and analysis with experimental biology, Jamie is currently focused on understanding how the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis regulates the pulsatile secretion of vital glucocorticoid hormones, and why the dynamics of this system changes in different physiological and pathological conditions.

Wessel Woldman

 

Wessel Woldman's central research focus is around applying mathematical techniques and computational models to clinical and health-care related problems with a strong focus on epilepsy and diabetes. Of particular interest is the dynamic behaviour of systems in the body, both in its healthy state, as well as in pathological states, and understanding how transitions between them occur and might be prevented.

Wessel develops and analyses mathematical models and interrogates clinical and experimental data, in order to discern differences between healthy controls and people with epilepsy which could potentially decrease misdiagnosis and improve the prognosis for people with epilepsy.

From June 2016, Wessel will be supported by an MRC Skills Development Fellowship.
