Here you can read about some highlights and pathways to impact from my recent research work, It is by no means an exhaustive list, and will change semi-regularly as I do new things (and remember things that pre-date this site…)

 

2017

Front Cover: My publication “Microscale flow dynamics of ribbons and sheets” was selected for the issue front cover of Soft Matter.

 

2016

PRFluids 100th Publication: My publication “Flow analysis of the low Reynolds number swimmer C. elegans” was selected to be published as the 100th paper by the new APS journal Physical Review Fluids.

EPSRC UROP: Funded by an EPSRC UROP, I supervised Lasse Schmieding on a 10-week summer research student project entitled “The many faces of Janus: modelling phoretic motion with maths and computers”. The project resulted in a paper currently under review for Physical Review Fluids. Lasse is currently in his 4th year studying mathematics at the University of Cambridge.

STEM4Britain: I won the silver medal prize in the mathematics category of the parliamentary competition STEM for Britain, for my poster entitled “Microrobotic Swimming”.

 

2015

Front Cover: My publication “A regularised singularity approach to phoretic problems” was selected for the issue front cover of European Physical Journal E.

Front Cover: My publication “Geometric pumping in autophoretic channels” was selected for the issue front cover of Soft Matter.

F1000 Recommendation: My publication “Digital Single-Cell Analysis of Plant Organ Development Using 3DCellAtlas” was recommended by the prestigious faculty of 1000.

Paper of the Month: My publication “Digital Single-Cell Analysis of Plant Organ Development Using 3DCellAtlas” was selected as Paper of the month for April 2015 by the Global Plant Council.

 

2014

LMS URB: I received an Undergraduate Research Bursary from the London Mathematical Society to supervise David Baker on a project entitled “Dynamics of cilia observed in developing zebrafish”. The projectled to a publication in the Journal of Mathematical Biology entitled “Three-dimensional flow in Kupffer’s Vesicle”, and David is currently doing his PhD in DAMTP, Cambridge.

1851 Fellowship: I was awarded a 3-year research fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, for my project entitled “Foundations of Biomedical Microrobots”. I can thoroughly recommend the Commission, as the selection process is fair and not too onerous.
