Our research focuses on the development of mathematical/computational models to represent and simulate the interaction of mechanics with biology. It is fundamental to understanding many physiological and pathophysiological processes. In the longer term, research in this area may lead to the development of predictive models of disease to guide diagnosis and intervention.
