About me

About me

I am a professor in Computing Science engaged in research and teaching in computing. My research lies in the intersection of computer science, mathematics and biology: understanding the behaviour of biological systems through mathematical and computational models. Models (in process algebra) can describe systems at a high level of abstraction as networks of communicating individuals, scaling up to the emergent population dynamics. My group has worked across a range of biological systems (disease dynamics, immunological systems, collective dynamics of cells, cell signalling response to cancer therapies) as well as in computer networks and protocols. In addition, my group is developing an exciting technique combining genetic programming with modelling to produce models directly from experimental data.

I am committed to advancing the careers of women in academic and have a number of related roles. I chair the BCS Women in Computing Research group (BCS is the professional society for computing and IT). I lead the CygnetS network for those interested in gender diversity in computing and am expanding that to a network for diversity in ICT (DiVERct). I am a member of the Centre for Gender and Feminist Studies, and a ScienceGrrl. I led the University's Athena SWAN activities 2012-2016, chairing our self-assessment panel, resulting in a successful Bronze award in 2013. My work in this area has been recognised by a Suffrage Science award, and a Scottish Woman of the Year award. I am a member of the Biological Modelling group.

Research (5)

My interests centre around formal methods and their use in the description and analysis of computer and biological systems. My work can be grouped broadly as below. I am keen to hear from anyone with an interest in doing a research Masters or PhD in these broad areas. A pervading aspect of my work generally is to undertake larger, more realistic, case studies, in order to demonstrate the utility of various approaches to verification. I'm particularly interested in biological systems, especially in healthcare. If you've got any good problems then drop me a line!

  1. Process algebra and collective dynamics: I led a multi-disciplinary project funded by EPSRC Improving Patient Outcome by Integrating the Personal with the Generic. The project is about combining mathematical and computational models at multiples scales of different treatments for cancer (specifically glioma), all underpinned by biological experimentation. I am working with Prof Fred Currell (Maths and Physics, Belfast), Dr Jonathan Coulter (Pharmacy, Belfast), Dr Matthew Hubbard (Mathematics, Nottingham), Dr Ronald Lambert (was in Applied Microbiology, Cranfield) and Dr Karen Polizzi (Molecular Biosciences, Imperial).
  2. Process Algebra applied to epidemiology: Prof Rachel Norman (Maths, Stirling) and I worked together on an EPSRC funded project System Dynamics (2007-2010). Our theoretical work was underpinned by the biological expertise of our collaborator Prof Mike Begon (Biological Sciences, Liverpool). With an Algerian research visitor (Dalila Hamami) I am working on combining modelling with data mining to provide epidemiological models.
  3. Combining evolutionary computation techniques with process algebra modelling, with Dr David Cairns (CS, Stirling). The idea is to use high-power computing resources to relieve the modeller of some of the hard work of identifying the right model by automatically constructing the model for them to fit the given experimental data.
  4. Multi-scale modelling of complex systems, specifically in relation to modelling shellfish, their immunology, and ocean context. Although there is a strong biological application, the main focus of the work is improving the theoretical underpinnings of integrating models at different scales and we plan to use the approach for the cell models above.
  5. Process algebra applied to immunology: This work focuses on the behaviour of immune cells (specifically CD4+ cells) in the context of conflicting threats, and is in collaboration with Dr Andrea Graham (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton).
  6. Modelling decision making using process algebra is another area of interest. I have done some preliminary work with a summer student (quorum sensing in Vibrio fischerii), but would like the chance to follow this up.Past interests:Development and promotion of a symbolic semantics for full LOTOS and associated reasoning tools. This was a long-term collaboration with Prof Muffy Calder (Glasgow) and Dr Savi Maharaj (CS, Stirling). The FireWire case study was a major strand in my work as the basis of several case studies using a variety of different formal approaches (probabilistic guarded command language, E-LOTOS, muCRL).
