Interests: bioengineering, bionanotechnology, biosensors, cell membranes, ion channels, nanopores


As Associate Professor at the Life Sciences Interface of ECS my main research interests are nano/microtechnology aspects of bioengineering, including chemical oscillators, 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 an integrated masters in (bio)chemistry and a PhD in biophysics in Utrecht. I collaborate with a wide range of scientists and engineers, from molecular biologists to clean room experts. I host engineers who are interested in biomedical applications of fabrication methodology as well as bioscientists who are keen to gain experience with biodevices 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 work. My publications in scientific journals (excluding conference proceedings etc) can be found at Google Scholar, with a full list under the 'Publications' tab. In terms of education, I deliver taught modules on fabrication and on biosensing and supervise bioengineering projects for undergraduate and MSc students. I am also Director of MSc Programmes and sit on the University's Academic Quality and Standards Committee (AQSC).
