Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research focuses on exploiting microengineering approaches (lab-on-a-chip, microfluidics, materials engineering) to create new in vitro models for investigating and controlling cell behaviours. Applications of this work include the development of tools for drug screening and for tissue engineering, with a particular focus on vascular cell biology. 

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

Teaching Interests

I have taught on both the BEng/MEng and MSc courses in Biomedical Engineering and I am currently module coordinator for BE105 (Cell Biology 1).
