Sam is currently a first-year PhD student at Swansea University under the supervision of Dr Gibin Powathil. His area of research is looking into how adipose tissue and its composition can play a role in the development and progression of certain types of cancer. Sam is particularly interested in using mathematical models to predict how tumours will respond to different methods of treatment as this can give an important insight into what results can be expected when administered to a patient. Sam graduated from the University of Bath with an MMath degree in July 2021.
