I currently lecture in Mathematics for first year Engineering Science students and in Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery for DPhil Students in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Healthcare Innovation (http://www.ibme.ox.ac.uk/training/cdt) in addition to supervising third and fourth year and Masters student projects.
I hold a BEng and PhD from University College London. Following the completion of my PhD in 2005 I was appointed to a lectureship and a Royal Academy of Engineering and EPSRC Research Fellowship and subsequently a Readership in 2010. I joined the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in Oxford in October 2011 when I also became a Fellow of St Catherine’s.
I am part of the Biomedical Ultrasonics, Biotherapy and Biopharmaceutical Laboratory (BUBBL http://www.ibme.ox.ac.uk/research/non-invasive-therapy-drug-delivery) and my research is focused in two complementary areas:
(1) Drug delivery systems engineering
Advanced encapsulation methods for the fabrication of drug carriers
Controlled release and biophysics of therapeutic delivery – Theranostics and treatment monitoring
(2) Biomedical ultrasonics
Engineering microbubble agents for diagnostic and therapeutic applications
Physics of cavitation in high intensity focused ultrasound
Biophysical effects of ultrasound
I currently supervise 8 DPhil students working in biomedical ultrasonics and drug delivery.
