Our first event of 2013 is being very kindly sponsored by the University of Bristol. Our speaker is Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova, a reader in Applied Mathematics at the University of Bristol.
As an applied mathematician, the nature of Krasimira's research is multidisciplinary. She is focusing on projects that could make a difference to experimental scientists and potentially society through the development of new techniques and understanding for interrogation of living systems. Her research is done in collaboration with scientists from different disciplines and different countries.
Krasimira has been awarded e number of research grants (as PI and Co-I) on modelling physiological systems at various levels - sub cellular (gene regulatory networks and ion channels), cellular (excitable systems) as well as cognitive architectures (interpersonal coordination dynamics). She has given a number of invited talks at prestigious institutions including: National Institutes of Health, Rockefeller University, Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State University, and John Innes Centre. Her international expertise in biomathematics has been recognized by electing her to serve as a member on the Organization for Computational Neuroscience (OCNS) conference review committee in 2011 and 2012.
The event starts at 6:30 for 7 - And is in the Queens Building at Bristol Uni. When you enter the building turn right and go up the stairs - at the top of the stairs turn left and go through the first set of doors 1.18 is the first room on your left. We will endeavour to get there early and put up signs so you can find it easily. As always we do not exclude men, but they must be accompanied by a Girl Geek so we don't get outnumbered!
