Current Research

My current research interests involve the synthesis of polymer microarrays for the high throughput evaluation of polymer - biological interactions. Specifically, the influence of a polymers surface chemistry upon the culture and pluripotency of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) towards new methodologies of stem cell production. To characterise the surface chemistry of the polymer microarrays, analytical techniques such as time-of-flight secondary ion spectroscopy (TOF-SIMS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), Raman and contact angle measurements are utilised. Furthermore, relationships between polymer composition and biological performance can be identified and correlated using statistical methods such as principal component analysis (PCA) and partial least squares analysis (PLS) to further elucidate ideal chemical compositions within a polymer library.
