My Interests

 Primary cilia, Mechanosignalling, Cell and Tissue Biomechanics, Cartilage, Osteoarthritis

I work on the development of organ-on-a-chip devices incorporating understanding of biomechanics and mechanobiology. I have a particular interest in models of cartilage injury and osteoarthritis and cancer. I am interested in using organ-on-a-chip models to understanding the fundamental interaction between primary cilia, inflammation and mechanical stimuli.

Collaboration Interests

Seeking expertise in endothelial cell models and fluid shear forces, and industrial collaboration to develop and test models of joint disease and cancer.
