Malvina Marku

Research Interests

My main interest is in applying biophysics, statistical physics and complex networks theory to study the dynamics and emerging behaviour of complex biological systems, e.g. tumours, in spatial and temporal scales and to gain a deeper understanding of systems’ evolution from the molecular network perspective. I am interested in using computational models that are able to capture emerging biological behaviour and evolving patterns in spatially structured tumours for enabling more accurate and clinically relevant predictions regarding disease course and treatment outcome.
