Time: 17:00

David Basanta is an Assistant Professor at the Moffitt Cancer Center working in the Integrated Mathematical Oncology Department. He has a degree in computer science from the University of Oviedo, Spain and a PhD in evolutionary computing from King's College London under the supervision of Drs Mark Miodowniks (KCL) and Peter Bentley (UCL). During his PhD  he developed an interest in computational and mathematical models of real evolutionary processes, cancer being a good example of it. His expertise lie in developing models of cancer, somatic evolution using tools such as agent based modelling and evolutionary game theory. His interests lie in integrated models where computational and mathematical models are developed in collaboration with cancer doctors and biologists, they are biologically parameterised and the hypotheses and insights resulting from the model are biologically and/or clinically tested.
