Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in understanding the basic physics that controls how biological and synthetic materials change shape through the influence of processes such as growth or swelling. Our work uses both experimental and theoretical methods and has relevance in basic biology (morphogenesis), healthcare (tissue engineering) and robotics (the design of actuators).
