Tamsin is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in the Biological Physics group.

Her general interests include using numerical and theoretical techniques to understand the behaviour of microsystems, in close colaboration with experiments. 

Her current research involves theoretically understanding partially enclosed oscillating microbubbles (AMBs) and studying a magnetically actuated artificial cilium. Her Supervisor is Dr Eric Lauga.
