Mr Kit Gallagher

BA, MSc, MinstP Camb


Kit Gallagher joined St Hilda’s College in October 2023 as a Stipendiary Lecturer in Applied Mathematics. He is currently a DPhil student in the Mathematical Institute, supervised by Prof Philip Maini, and has also held teaching positions at Keble College and St Edmund Hall.

Kit’s teaching interests lie in physical and applied mathematics, specifically through differential equation, special relativity, and mathematical biology.

Kit’s primary research applies evolutionary and ecological approaches to treatment resistance cancer, with a specific focus on late-stage prostate and ovarian cancers. He uses techniques from mathematical modelling, statistical inference and deep reinforcement learning to produce personalized treatment schedules in complex treatment paradigms when multiple dosing levels or therapeutic agents are available.
