Current Research

In my research I seek to develop biomaterials that positively impact the healthcare sector, focusing on exploring the biological-material interface through an interdisciplinary approach. I have pioneered high throughput screening methodologies for the discovery of novel biomaterials, focusing on polymers resistant to bacterial attachment. I focus on developing multi-functional materials that are able to respond to the complex in vivo environment, and have used a variety of techniques to develop, analyse and assess the materials, including cell biology, microscopy and surface analysis.
