I studied mathematics and biology, and currently I combine both fields as a PhD candidate in Theoretical Biology. I develop models of the evolution and dynamics of bacterial interactions. My work focuses on toxin production and signaling, trying to understand how and why bacteria both kill and communicate with each other. I am fascinated by the way computational and mathematical models can be used to gain (biological) insights.
