Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research focuses on exploiting microsystems engineering 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. My background is highly interdisciplinary, spanning the engineering-life science interface, with expertise in a wide range of cell biology, microfabrication, live-cell imaging and analytical technologies. 

Research Interests

Current research projects, involving collaboration with a diverse range of academic and clinical collaborators, include:

  • investigating the phenotypic changes in vascular cells that underlie cardiovascular disease
  • the development of organ-on-a-chip models for chronic gynaecological conditions
  • the development of new methods for monitoring mitochondrial dynamics in neuronal preparations.

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).
