I am a researcher in the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, funded by a Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Research Fellowship entitled Foundations of Biomedical Microrobots. My research is focused upon microscale continuum phenomena, in particular microscale flows, active and complex fluids, fluid-structure interactions, and artificial propulsion including diffusiophoresis. The work is highly interdisciplinary, drawing from mathematics, statistical physics, biology and continuum mechanics, and entails collaboration with experimentalists in biology and fluid dynamics.
