Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research background is highly multidisciplinary, centred around the development of microsystems engineering and biophysical techniques as tools for studying basic biological questions and for biochemical analysis.

Research Interests

Current research projects are focussed upon combining lab-on-a-chip approaches and material functionalisation with live-cell imaging to: 

  • investigate the phenotypic changes in vascular cells that underlie cardiovascular disease
  • develop new methods for monitoring mitochondrial dynamics in neuronal preparations
  • develop physiologically relevant, in vitro model systems
