QBIOX is an interdisciplinary network that fosters a culture of quantitative research in the biosciences with a focus on applications in developmental biology, cancer and tissue engineering where similar cell- and tissue-level processes are at play and, hence have common theoretical methodologies.
By bringing together biomedical and physical scientists, QBIOX aims to exploit synergies between the application areas and facilitate the formation of large and coherent multidisciplinary consortia of researchers who share a commitment to making biology and medicine quantitative, and who possess the depth and range of specialist knowledge needed to effect a step-change in understanding in these areas.
QBIOX hosts a programme of activities to catalyse interdisciplinary and quantitative theory-experiment research in the biosciences including colloquia and sandpits.

My research is concerned with the effects of genetic anomalies and teratogens on face and brain development, in particular the use of 3D images and shape analysis.
My research focusses on developing and applying multiscale tools to understand the mechanics of biomaterials.
