Alessandro Moura is a lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, in Scotland, since 2006. He has a background in dynamical systems and statistical physics, and his research interests in this area includes transient chaos and chaotic scattering; and chaotic advection in fluid flows. Since moving to Aberdeen, he has also been active in applying the methods of dynamical systems and statistical physics to understand biological systems. He has worked on mathematical models of DNA replication, DNA damage and repair, and stress response in microorganisms.
