Dr Ben Walker
Ben’s research focuses on problems of mechanics and growth that arise in biology, and the application of mathematical techniques to analyse, simplify, and understand models of biological systems. He often makes use of asymptotic techniques applied to fluid and solid mechanics, along with the classical methods and approaches of mathematical biology through the study of phenomenological models. His research has included the study of swimming on the microscale, modelling the interaction between growing tumours and their environments, and exploring reaction-diffusion equations on growing domains.
