Dr Paul Watton

Profile

Biography

Dr Paul Watton is a Lecturer in Computer Science and with the INSIGNEO institute for in silico Modelling at the University of Sheffield, UK. He also holds an adjunct assistant professorship with the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, University of Pittsburgh, US. He has a mathematical background (BSc Mathematics (Newcastle), MSc Mathematical Logic (Manchester) and a PhD in Applied Mathematics (Leeds). His researches focuses on the growth and remodelling of biological soft-tissues with application to development, aging and disease.
