Welcome Michael Lones

Welcome to my website. I am a Lecturer in the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. My research is concerned with understanding complexity in biological systems, particularly how this understanding can motivate the design of computational systems, and conversely how computational systems can be used to understand biological complexity.
