About the speaker
Ruth Baker is a Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford where she leads the Quantitative Developmental Biology Group (part of the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology). The groups focus is on developing and applying novel mathematical and computational methodologies and modelling frameworks for investigating developmental biology systems at the cell and tissue level. The aim in developing new methodologies is to facilitate the development of biologically realistic models that, used in tandem with experiments, can provide fundamental insights into the key biological mechanisms underlying embryo development. In this way, an important part of their work is multidisciplinary collaboration with theoreticians, life scientists and clinicians both within Oxford and further afield.
