Interests: bionanoscience, bionanotechnology, biosensors, membrane biophysics, nanopores, nanotoxicology


As Associate Professor at the Life Sciences Interface of ECS my main research interests are bionanoscience and bionanotechnology applications of bioengineering, including microscale protein expression, microfluidic cell arrays, semiconductor biosensors, and ion channel nanopores. Before I came to Southampton I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Melbourne and in Oxford, after obtaining a PhD in biophysics and a first degree in (bio)chemistry in Utrecht. I routinely collaborate with a wide range of scientists and engineers, from theoreticians to molecular biologists and clean room experts. I host engineers who are interested in biomedical applications of nanotechnology as well as bioscientists who are keen to gain experience with device fabrication at the micro-nanoscale. Please have a look at the 'Research' tab for a selection of current projects and a description of the facilities that I use for my research. I deliver taught modules on fabrication and biosensing, supervise bionano projects for undergraduate and MSc students, and am programme leader for the MSc Biodevices. I also oversee the academic appeals process in ECS.
