Frits Veerman

Current research

I'm currently assistant professor at the Mathematical Institute, University of Leiden. Until January 2020, I was a Humboldt Research Fellow at the research group Applied Analysis and Modelling in Biosciences, University of Heidelberg, with Anna Marciniak-Czochra. Until May 2018, I was a postdoc at the School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh, with Nikola Popović. Until November 2015, I was a postdoc at the Centre for Mathematical Biology, University of Oxford, with Philip Maini.

PhD research

My PhD research, at the University of Leiden, focused on pulse dynamics in two component, singularly perturbed reaction-diffusion equations. Keywords: pattern formation, dynamical systems.
The research was supervised by Arjen Doelman and Vivi Rottschäfer.
