Dr. Rosalind J. Allen





RSE Young Academy


I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow and proleptic Reader in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Edinburgh University.

My research focuses on biological and soft condensed matter physics, using simulations, theory and experiments. In particular, I am interested in microbe-environment interactions - how single-celled organisms such as bacteria survive and grow in complex and changing environments. You can read more about my research, teaching and other activities in the links to the left.
