Roman Bauer is an EPSRC Research Fellow, with a research focus on biological dynamics. He devises and analyses computational and statistical models of how tissue evolves (e.d. during development, degeneration or other types of processing, e.g. cryopreservation), in order to better understand the system dynamics. These models incorporate the interaction between cellular processes and physical laws of the extracellular environment. Since such a detailed approach can be very demanding from a computational point of view, his research also involves modern computing approaches and IT-related collaboration.
Roman received his Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Computational Science and Engineering from ETH Zuerich, Switzerland. Afterwards, he did his doctoral studies with Prof. Rodney Douglas at the Institute for Neuroinformatics (INI) at ETH and University Zuerich, working on simulations of cortical development. He joined Prof. Marcus Kaiser's lab in September 2013 and afterwards started his MRC fellowship project in September 2016 as an independent PI. In June 2018 he took up an EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellowship at the School of Computing and a joint affiliation with the Institute of Genetic Medicine, both at Newcastle University.
