Reader in Biomedical Engineering & Biomaterials
Molecular self-assembly, the spontaneous organization of molecules into ordered aggregates by noncovalent interactions and without external control, is of central importance to life (e.g., protein folding, formation of lipid bilayers). Using biological inspiration and tools of chemistry, physics and engineering, we aim to explore new (macro)molecular units (peptides and sugar polymers) mimicking the composition and structure of carbohydrates and proteins (vital constituents of all organisms) to develop materials by self-assembly with particular properties and function for bioengineering applications. We expect that combinations of these building blocks and their controlled self-assembly can generate the discovery of innovative biomaterials with ...

We are interested in mechanics of materials, how they deform under loading, and ultimately, how they break. We use computer simulations to predict when this happens. We use commercial software when we can, but often we have to write our software. We have experience in a wide range of materials, from engineering (metals, rubber, ceramics and composites) to biological (bones). Sometimes we take inspiration from nature and the arts to invent new structures.

My research aims to understand how different movements are achieved across a variety of steady and non-steady tasks; in particular, how the mechanics and muscles are used to control movement. I apply this knowledge to differentiate healthy gait from injury and disease, by identifying these fundamental control priorities. Identification of these control priorities, and using these to discover markers for disease severity will help assess the effectiveness of different treatment interventions for gait deficits. Non-steady tasks, such as walking over obstacles are key to identifying these underlying control parameters.

Lecturer in Materials Science
Admissions Tutor of Division of Materials Engineering
My current research areas mainly focus on smart multifunctional materials, hierarchical composites and nanomaterials. The multifunctionalities in composites I am interested including strain and damage sensing, self-healing with preserved mechanical properties, integrated energy harvesting and storage, and sustainable manufacturing based on self-regulating heating. My experiences cover from design and processing to advanced characterisation and interpretation of polymer and composite materials.
