Torkel Loman is a final year PhD student at the Sainsbury Laboratory, at the University of Cambridge. In his research is uses mathematical models to study sensory pathways in bacteria, while also working in close cooperation with experimentalists. The primary focus is stochastic models and the investigation of how intrinsic cellular noise can be harnessed by the bacteria to create advantageous phenotypes. He is also a codeveloper of the Catalyst.jl chemical reaction network modelling package. Torkel has previously studied at the programs for engineering mathematics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics at Lund University.
