Hiroko Kamei obtained her graduate degrees at the University of Warwick; MSc in Mathematics, MSc and PhD in Mathematical Biology and Biophysical Chemistry.

Her doctoral thesis was on synchrony-breaking bifurcation in coupled cell networks supervised by Prof. Ian Stewart.

She started work as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Dundee on "Pharmacodynamics of anti-cancer drugs" with Dr Fordyce Davidson and Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals Inc. in 2009.

She has been a lecturer (Teaching and Scholarship) in the Division of Mathematics at the University of Dundee since 2010.


Her main research interests are in dynamical systems, bifurcation theory and its applications.

She is especially interested in investigating interplay between network structure and dynamical behaviour.

For her PhD, she studied classification of networks and their synchrony-breaking bifurcation behaviour solely from network structures by representing all possible partial synchronies (clusters) of a given coupled cell network as a lattice of partially ordered sets.

She is also interested in linking theoretical aspects of dynamical systems with real application problems arising in many branches of science, such as neuroscience.
