Michael is interested in developing software and methods in computer science that apply to biological systems. A main topic of interest is writing software that infers DNA replication dynamics on single molecules from nanopore reads. Another is creating a process algebra language that makes it quick and simple to simulate complex, multiscale behaviour in biology. Michael did his PhD in condensed matter physics at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Andrew Turberfield and Luca Cardelli. He is originally from New Jersey, USA and hobbies include cycling and photography.
