  • 2014 – 2019: Scottish Government Personal Research Fellowship co-funded by Marie Curie Actions

  • 2012-2014: Leverhulme Trust Early Career Research Fellow, ICMCS, Edinburgh

  • 2009-2012: Postdoctoral researcher, ICMCS, Edinburgh

  • 2006-2009: Postdoctoral researcher, ITP, University of Leipzig

  • 2006-2007: DAAD fellowship, ITP, University of Leipzig

I have supervised 5 senior-honour students, 5 summer students, 15 Master students and 4 PhD students as the 1st supervisor. I also supervised 4 more PhD students as the 2nd supervisor.

I was co-lead organiser (with Prof. R. Allen) of a Royal Society meeting “Antimicrobial resistance: how can physicists help”, Chicheley Hall, 28-29 Oct 2015. I also co-organised (main organiser R. Blythe) a Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics/IOP meeting “Physical principles of biological and active systems”, 6-7 January 2016, Edinburgh where I chaired a session on the physics of bacteria and antimicrobial resistance. I co-organised (main organizer Tibor Antal) an international conference “Stochastic models of evolving populations: from bacteria to cancer” (funded by ICMS), Edinburgh, 16-20 July 2018.

I am the member of the IOP Biological Physics Group Committee.

I also edited a special issue of Physical Biology on the physics of antimicrobial resistance.
