Welcome to Michelle Baker

We welcome Michelle Baker to the lab for an 8 week project to work on mathematical models of antimicrobial resistance. Michelle writes:

“I am a research associate working within this group looking at the mathematical modelling of antimicrobial resistance. I have recently submitted my PhD on the subject of ‘Mathematical modelling of cytokine interaction in arthritic disease’ based in the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology at the University of Nottingham. In this work I used ODE and spatial models to study the feedback dynamics between different groups of cytokines within arthritic joints and suggest possible treatment targets and strategies for drug therapies in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. Prior to commencing my PhD studies I worked as a risk analyst for an energy company.”
