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 developing new in vitro models.

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

Information on currently available PhD opportunities can be found at:


Teaching Interests

I have taught on both the BEng/MEng and MSc courses in Biomedical Engineering and I am currently course coordinator for BE105 (Cell Biology 1) and a contributor to BE100 (Anatomy and Physiology).
