Research interests:

Self-assembly and self-organisation in biological matter (`patchy particles’)
Kinetics of bio-fiber polymerization (actin, microtubules, hemoglobin)
Semiflexible bio-polymer networks and their structural, elastic and rheological properties (actin cytoskeletons, fibrin blood clots)
Bio-adhesion, ligands and receptors (cancer)
Cell motility

Teaching

  • EG-114 Engineering Analysis 1B (Mech & EEE)

    This module (in combination with Engineering Analysis 2B) provides the essential grounding in mathematical analysis techniques for engineering students. This module ensures that all students have a suitable level of analytical skills for subsequent engineering modules.

  • EG-114W Engineering Analysis 1B (Mech & EEE)

    This module (in combination with Engineering Analysis 2B) provides the essential grounding in mathematical analysis techniques for engineering students. This module ensures that all students have a suitable level of analytical skills for subsequent engineering modules.

  • EG-231 Heat Transfer

    The module is designed to provide a basic understanding of heat transfer. Subjects will include: conduction, forced and natural convection and an introduction to radiation.

  • EG-238 Experimental Studies for Medical Engineers

    The course introduces the students to experimental studies in a wide range of subjects. Each experiment is self contained and the student will present the findings in written form through a lab report which will have a set of experiment specific questions to answer. This written report also forms the basis for the assessment. All students work in groups and carry out five experiments which vary according to discipline, however the assignments are all individually submitted. The students keep a log-book of the experimental observations and results, which is used for reference for the technical report from each experiment written-up in the week after the experiment.
