I hold a BA & MSci in Natural Sciences and PhD in Materials Science and Metallurgy from the University of Cambridge. After seven years as a student at Churchill College, I took up a research fellowship at Emmanuel College, where I began my work on electroactive biomaterials. I moved from Cambridge to Oxford in September 2022 as an Associate Professor of Biomaterials at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, when I also joined St Catherine’s College as a fellow.
I am a materials scientist with an interest in developing novel materials for biomedical applications. Currently, I work on exploiting the electroactivity of biomaterials to monitor therapy, deliver drugs, and encourage tissue regeneration.
I am a College Adviser to some Engineering Science graduate students at St Catherine’s. I currently supervise one graduate student in the area of tissue engineering and electroactive biomaterials, and am always on the lookout for bright and enthusiastic candidates to join my group!
