As Associate Professor at the Life Sciences Interface of ECS my main research interests are nano/microtechnology aspects 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 an integrated masters in (bio)chemistry in Utrecht. I 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 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 research. 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 biosensing, supervise bioengineering projects for undergraduate and MSc students, and am programme leader for the MSc Biodevices. I also oversee the academic appeals process in ECS.
