Personal profile


Dr Mark Flegg completed a PhD in mathematical modelling of aerosol physics with a particular focus on particle interactions in 2010 at Queensland University of Technology. After a short postdoctoral position in the field of modelling medical physics and clinical diagnostic mechanisms, Dr Flegg underwent a postdoctoral position at the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics (OCCAM) at the University of Oxford, UK. Dr Flegg has returned to Australia as a Lecturer in the newly formed Monash Academy for Cross and Interdisciplinary Mathematical Applications (MAXIMA).

His research interests in applied mathematics are varied and include: Mathematical Biology, Cell biology, Stochastic processes, particle motion and simulation, modelling of clinical ultrasound in bone, developmental biology, cancer biology.
