Rachel Coy

MRes Modelling Biological Complexity, University College London (2015)
BA Mathematics, University of Cambridge (2013)

Academic Background:
Rachel obtained her undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2013, after studying a wide range of both pure and applied maths. During her final year, she became interested in mathematical biology and focused on topics such as dynamical systems, probability and statistical modelling.
Rachel joined the UCL CoMPLEX MRes/PhD scheme in 2014, funded by the British Heart Foundation, and completed her MRes in 2015. During the year she undertook short research projects with an emphasis on computational/mathematical modelling, focused on different topics within cardiovascular research.

Rachel began her PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Dr Rebecca Shipley and Dr James Phillips, and will be working on developing a mathematical model which describes the coordinated patterning of nerves and blood vessels during development and repair. Such a model could be used to aid the design of peripheral nerve repair constructs.
