Rob and Janine are very enthusiastic about encouraging students to continue to study both mathematics and biology by explaining how mathematical models can be used to explore biological questions.


They are both currently research students using models to attempt to understand how the cells inside our bodies stay healthy and what happens in disease. They have experience in communicating science to both school pupils and the public through diverse projects.
