Personal profile

Research Interests

As a neurodivergent (/autistic) researcher with a focus on the molecular mechanisms of neurodiversity, my top three research interests include:

- Examining the mechanosensitivity of connective tissues, particularly in the central nervous system.
- Investigating fluid mechanics at the micro scale and its impact on tissue development.
- Examining the cell-material interface for potential organoid engineering applications.

Other areas of interest that did not make it to the top three include:

- Evaluating the potential for nature-based design using micro-organisms.
- Improving our understanding of tissue and biofilm development.
- Re-examining the definition of composite organisms and their relationship with the environment.

With a background in fine art, design, engineering, and science, I am always open to engaging in thought-provoking conversations, regardless of whether your research interests align with mine.
