Hi there! I am a passionate Master of Philosophy candidate in applied mathematics at the University of Adelaide. In my master's project, I explore the world of mathematical biology. More specifically, I aim to better understand the growth patterns and behaviour of yeast colonies commonly used for making bread and alcoholic beverages. I find this interdisciplinary collaboration extremely rewarding because it empowers me to make contributions to benefit winemakers, bioengineers, material scientists etc.

Under the supervision of A/Prof Benjamin Binder and Dr Edward Green, I am developing new mathematical models to predict the spatial patterns in yeast colonies. We employ both continuous partial differential equations and discrete agent-based approaches to better understand different types of yeast growths from experimental results. Very exciting!
