A very kind collaborator pointed out that my microtransformers grant got an article in “The Engineer” – pretty chuffed! https://www.theengineer.co.uk/swimming-microbots-filament-…/ A very well-written summary of the idea (particularly as I wasn’t especially cogent on the phone to the writer).
I am delighted to welcome Panayiota Katsamba from DAMTP Cambridge to the University of Birmingham as my first ever postdoc. She’s way smarter than me, so I’m excited about all the research we’ll be able to do – check out my
As part of my (3 year!) probation as a lecturer at Birmingham, there is a substantial compulsory teaching course. A part of that course is to write a teaching blog; I’ve always seen blogs as a way to promote research,
Happy to say I have been awarded a grant from the EPSRC to take my work forward – it includes money for a 2-year postdoc position get your application in before 9th Feb if you’re interested!
New paper published in Phys. Rev. Fluids – pretty happy with the title. Check it out on my publications page.
Autophoretic flow on a torus, and the dynamics of cilia in left-right development – scooch over to my publications to check them out
Happy to say that my publication in Phys Rev Fluids last month has just been highlighted in Nature Physics
Very happy that work from my recent paper in Soft Matter has made the journal front cover this month.
I’m happy to say that Springer just published a book entitled “Plant Hormones, methods and protocols”, for which I’m a coauthor of the chapter “In Silico Methods for Cell Annotation, Quantification of Gene Expression, and Cell Geometry at Single-Cell Resolution
My recent work on a simple numerical method for calculated the flow dynamics of ribbon and sheet like structures at microscopic scales has been accepted to the RSC journal Soft Matter. A preprint of the accepted version of the paper
