LYNDEN-BELL RESEARCH FELLOW IN APPLIED MATHEMATICS
I am a theoretician passionate about solving problems at the intersection of mathematics, physics and biology. I currently hold the Lynden-Bell Research Fellowship in Mathematics at Clare College, Cambridge. I am actively interested in a variety of biophysical problems including multi-flagellated bacterial motility, cellular adhesion on soft substrates, and the mechanics of nuclear envelope rupture in neutrophils.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate of Prof Jean-Francois Joanny at the Collège de France in Paris and carried out my doctoral studies in Prof Eric Lauga's group at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. My doctoral work involved the use of mathematical modelling and numerical simulations to study the swimming of multi-flagellated bacteria like the well-known Escherichia coli.
