Reidun Twarock, PhD
Reidun Twarock is Professor of Mathematical Virology at the University of York (UK). Her
research is at the interface of mathematical modelling, computational biophysics and data
science, in close collaboration with experimental virologists. This Integrative Systems
Virology approach enabled the discovery of mechanisms in viral life cycles that Twarock and
collaborators are currently exploiting in virus nanotechnology and antiviral therapy. After her
PhD in Mathematical Physics (Clausthal, Germany, 1997) and an Assistant Professorship in
Mathematics (City University, London), Twarock was appointed Associate Professor, and
since 2009 Professor, in the Departments of Mathematics and Biology in York. She is
currently an EPSRC Established Career Fellow, a Royal Society Wolfson Fellow, and a
Wellcome Trust Investigator. In 2018 she won the Gold Medal of the Institute of Mathematics
and Its Applications.
