My background is molecular biology. In the recent years I have become increasingly fascinated by the power of quantitative approaches in biology. I currently study a social behaviour in C. elegans called collective feeding, using quantitative analysis of video microscopy (and mathematical modelling, done by our collaborators Robert Endres and Linus Schumacher at Imperial College). I hope to gain a better understanding of the molecular and neuronal bases of this interesting behaviour.
