In my group, we employ tools from theoretical physics to develop mathematical models that help answer questions in biology. In particular, we are interested in understanding the physical principles behind tissue self-organisation and shaping, both in embryos and in vitro tissue models like organoids. The mathematical models that we develop are usually complex, and in most cases cannot be solved with pen and paper. To deal with this, we employ numerical methods such as finite elements, which allows us to simulate the behaviour of cells and tissues in a computer.
