Professor Tiina Roose


I hold a Chair of Biological and Environmental Modelling at the Faculty of Engineering and Environment in the University of Southampton.

I am also member of the Institute of Life Sciences (IFLS) which coordinates cross faculty life science initiatives within the University of Southampton and one of the coordinators of Crop Systems Engineering in IFLS.

My Researcher ID is A-6352-2010

My Work

First and foremost I am a scientist. I use a combination of mathematical modelling and experiments to address the scientific questions I am interested in.

In particular I am interested in understanding how biological branching structures, such as plant roots, blood and lymph vessels and lung, develop and function.

As an academic mentor and supervisor I pride myself in taking an active interest in my student’s and postdoc’s careers and help them get the best out of their work by actively encouraging and helping them to publish and communicate their work to wide academic audiences.
