Ray Goldstein, Alan Turing Professor of Complex Physical Systems at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), works on an area of Turing's legacy less well-known than the famous mathematician's work in WWII: mathematical biology.

In the run-up to the centenary of Turing's death, Goldstein tells us about the work his research group does in Cambridge today, some recent results he's particularly excited about, and how mathematics can help shed light on fascinating problems in evolution.

You can read about the topics discussed in this interview in the feature article Unravelling the secrets of life.
