EE Benoithuard Staffprofile 255

I am a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at Northumbria University.

After completing a PhD in mathematical physics at the University of Montreal in 2010, I was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the FQRNT (government of Quebec) to undertake research within the group of Geometry and Mathematical Physics at Loughborough University. I joined Northumbria University as a Research Fellow in November 2012 and am an ordinary member of the London Mathematical Society.

An important part of our current work concerns the characterisation of periodic regimes in the glucose-insulin regulation and describing pathways to restoring them. In particular, it has been shown that delays implied by biological synthesis processes are essential to generating healthy rhythms which are crucial in the prevention of complications such as diabetes.

I am keen to supervise projects about geometric methods in differential equations and in the mathematical modelling of biological processes.
