João Ramos obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degree in Physics from the University of Coimbra (Portugal) in 2014 and 2016, respectively. For his master’s, he specialized in Computational Modelling and Simulation. While at Coimbra, he worked with Dr. Rui Travasso and Dr. João Carvalho from the Soft and Biological Matter group at the Center for Physics of the University of Coimbra. This included developing a cellular automata model for tumor-induced angiogenesis during his bachelor’s and, for his master’s thesis, simulating mechanically-driven pattern formation in cell cultures using a cellular Potts model coupled with a finite element method as well as employing image analysis techniques for characterizing the morphology of emerging patterns. In 2017, he joined the BPM group as a Ph.D. student working on auxin transport during plant development, and since 2023 he is now continuing as a Post-Doc.
