Research

I am a member of the Biological Physics research group in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP).  I am interested in the role of fluid flows and forces in the regulation and development of biological systems.

keywords: Cilia, Biological Stokesian Flows, Mechanotransduction, heart/valve development, embyonic heart, blood flow, inner ear, Benigne Paroxismal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), boundary and meshless numerical methods.
