Name and Title
Dr Radek Erban
Nicholas Kurti Junior Research Fellow
MSc PhD (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA)
Mgr RNDr (Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic)
Royal Society University Research Fellow (held at the Mathematical Institute)
Nicholas Kurti Junior Fellow (at Brasenose College)
Academic Background and Previous Positions
I obtained my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota in 2005 and since then I have worked as a researcher in the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford.
In recent years, I was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize (2010), a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (2011) and a European Research Council Starting Independent Researcher Grant (2009) for my work in Applied Mathematics.
In Oxford, I was previously affiliated with Somerville College (as a Fulford Junior Research Fellow, 2008-2011) and Linacre College (as a Junior Research Fellow, 2005-2008).
Undergraduate Teaching Areas
I have supervised several fourth-year dissertations in different areas of my research. Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to work with me.
Graduate Teaching Areas
I supervise DPhil and MSc dissertations in different areas of applied mathematics and systems biology. I have supervised 15 graduate students to date. I am a supervisor in the Systems Biology Doctoral Training Centre and in the MSc program in Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing.
I am an applied mathematician. The key goals of my research are the development, analysis and application of mathematical and computational techniques for a broad range of biological, chemical and physical problems. The areas I have worked on to date include bacterial and amoeboid chemotaxis, stochastic modelling of reaction-diffusion processes, mathematical fluid dynamics, gene regulatory networks, chemisorption with pharmacological applications, collective behaviour of locusts, stochastic chemical systems involving oscillations, liquid crystals, gene transcription, bioinformatics and data analysis in systems biology.
