Personal profile


Responsible for the research program “Navigating tipping points in complex dynamical systems”. This project expects to generate innovative techniques from complex systems theory and dynamical systems theory to identify tipping points and apply these techniques to understand real world systems. Working with clinicians and practicing engineers the project aims to contribute to the development of new treatment regimes for dynamical diseases and develop improved management strategies for resource-focused engineering industries. This should provide significant benefit to many areas including the personalized treatment of disease.
