David M. Holloway

University of British Columbia, Canada

David M. Holloway is an instructor of mathematics at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and a Research Associate in chemistry at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. His research is focused on the formation of spatial pattern in developmental biology (embryology) in animals and plants. Topics include the establishment and maintenance of differentiation states, coupling between chemical pattern and tissue growth for the generation of shape, and the effects of molecular noise on spatial precision. This work is chiefly computational (the solution of partial differential equation models for developmental phenomena), but also includes data analysis for body segmentation in the fruit fly. He received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of British Columbia in 1995, and did postdoctoral fellowships there and at the University of Copenhagen and Simon Fraser University.
