My publications are available from the University of Kent's Academic Repository.

Research Interests

I belong to the following research groups:

I got my PhD in Physics from the University of Bergen (norway) in 2001. I joined the department as an Academic Fellow in Sept. 2005. My main research interest is Bio-inspired computing and Systems Biology. Specifically, I am working on computational systems that evolve cell signaling networks that have pre-specified properties. I am currently also collaborating with Dr. Ian Blomfield from the Biosciences department at the University of Kent on modeling a gene expression pathway in E. coli. For a list of my publications please see here.

As part of my outreach activity I am organising the Cafe Scientifique in Canterbury. Please see here for more information.

Ph.D. student candidates are welcome

Would you like to do a Ph.D. in Bio-inspired computing or Systems Biology (possibly jointly with the Biosciences department)? I would be happy to talk to you about that. Contact me for an informal chat. For information about how to apply, possible funding, general information about research in the Computing Laboratory, etc., see our postgraduate research page.
