Dr. David Flaherty

Post Doctoral Researcher

Dr. David Flaherty's research focuses on the use of computational techniques to construct and interrogate models of real-world systems. His previous work has included the use of ODE models to develop novel hypotheses to develop better understanding of plant stomata regulation, the use of agent-based models to accelerate the drug design pipeline, and network models to simulate the spread of disease and information in a realistic population to better understand the impact of policy decisions on disease spread. His graduate work focused on the development of new computational techniques to enable modelling of systems in advance of experiments, when little to no quantitative data is available.
