Principal Investigator

I am a biological physicist interested in the physical and biological dynamics and synthetic ecology of microbial populations. I am interested in soft, active and living matter and lead the UK Fluids Network Biologically Active Fluids special interest group, comprising 40 leading UK academics in the field. I am also interested in soft matter physics and quantum vacuum electrodynamics (the Feigel effect).
