Tom Leyshon


I’m a EPSRC funded Ph.D. student in the theoretical systems biology group, supervised by Prof. Stumpf. My project involves looking into the underlying mechanisms of stem cell differentiation using methods from non-equilibrium statistical physics.


Before starting my Ph.D. at Imperial I achieved a first class degree (Mphys) in physics at the university of Manchester. Within my masters research projects I looked into the evolutionary dynamics of cancer initiation, as well as modelling the adsorption process of COE-3 antibodies onto a silica surface. I have previously been involved in research projects at university of Manchester biophysics group,  freie universitat Berlin theoretical chemistry group and the Ross lab at the university of Massachusetts, Amherst.
