About Me

Paul Greaney

I am a final-year Applied Mathematics PhD student in the Stokes Research Cluster of the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway, under the supervision of Dr Giuseppe Zurlo and Dr Martin Meere. My research is funded by a Postgraduate Research Fellowship from the College of Science at NUI Galway. I completed a B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway in 2014.

I am mainly interested in problems which involve the application of continuum mechanics to biological phenomena. My current research aims to model thickness variations and thinning instabilities of the cell membrane during deformation. This forms part of a broader ambition in developing mathematical models for endocytosis.
Other recent research has focused on the mathematical modelling of the interaction of cells with quantum dots, a type of nanoparticle made from semiconductor materials. This work was informed by close collaboration with Dr Yury Rochev's group at the National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science and the Network of Excellence for Functional Biomaterials at NUI Galway.
