About the speaker

Prof. Adelle Coster is an applied mathematician and head of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of New South Wales. She uses dynamical systems analyses, stochastic modelling and queueing theory, amongst other techniques to answer questions arising from fields other than mathematics, particularly in biomedicine and biology. The investigations in which she currently involved range from understanding the dynamics of fundamental protein-protein interactions, cellular processes, the geometrical morphological features of microfossils, to the interactions in systems at larger scales involving human subjects. Projects include the modelling of

  • cellular glucose transport in response to insulin and the deleterious effects insulin resistance and diabetes;
  • the dynamics of electrically excitable cells such as peripheral nerves and the cardiac pacemaker; and
  • starch grains within edible plants, allowing the identification of both contemporary grains and those found on ancient tools
