Careers - Tel Lekatsas

Hi. I’ve been fascinated by mathematics and biology for as long as I can remember. Before studying mathematics, I completed a medical degree at the University of Queensland and I continue to work as a doctor on a part-time basis. My main areas of mathematical interest are knot theory and biomathematics.

Biological systems, such as the human heart or simply DNA in each living cell, are incredibly complex. Many branches of mathematics have been used to gain insight into such systems. Currently I have been looking at Knot Theory and applying it to the topology of DNA.
