About me

I'm a second year PhD student in Mathematical Biology at the University of Oxford, supervised by Prof. R. Baker and Prof. J. A. Carrillo. I did my undergraduate studies in Physics and Mathematics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Now at Oxford, I'm working on mathematical models of collective cell migration. My research combines tools from interacting particle systems, partial differential equations, and Bayesian parameter inference, to understand complex phenomena at the cell and tissue level.

Research interests

  • Pattern formation in systems of interacting cell populations

  • Applications of aggregation-diffusion systems in biology

  • Identifiability and parameter estimation for biophysical models

  • Connections between microscale and macroscale models of cell movement
