David 150x150

David Richards

David’s research uses mathematical and computational models to try to understand processes in our immune systems. In particular he focuses on phagocytosis, the way in which immune cells ingest large particles, such as bacteria, debris and dead cells.

David’s work involves a multidisciplinary approach, combining spatio-temporal modelling and image analysis with multiple experimental collaborations.

Area of expertise:

  • Computational modelling.
  • Spatio-temporal modelling.
  • Image analysis.
  • Mathematical and computational models.

Kyle 150x150

Kyle Wedgwood

Kyle is primarily interested in emergent behaviour in biological tissue, and interested in using mathematical models to simplify these complex interactions with a view to understanding the mechanisms which produce the behaviour that we observe.

He uses a combination of techniques from dynamical systems theory alongside numerical methods to address these issues.

Area of expertise:

  • Complex networks
  • Neural behaviour
  • Uncertainty for biological computations
  • Oscillations
  • Non-equilibrium processing

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
