Professor R Allen
Rosalind is a member of the following School research institute and research areas:
Dr. Allen's research focuses on biological and soft condensed matter physics, using simulations, theory and experiments. She is particularly interested in applying ideas and methods from physics to the important emerging biological question of how microbial populations develop, interact and function as ecosystems. Dr. Allen also contributes to the development of advanced computer simulation methods, to our understanding of the kinetics of protein aggregation, and to understanding the behaviour of non-equilibrium active matter.
I jointly teach the level 11 course Biological Physics.
