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

I just heard that I have been awarded an ERC consolidator grant to investigate the link between spatial structure in bacterial populations and the emergence of antibiotic resistance!
Bartek Waclaw and I have agreed to co-organize a special issue of Physical Biology on antimicrobial resistance on a rolling timescale in 2016. If you might have a paper to submit please get in touch with us.
Last week we had a great Royal Society International Scientific Seminar at Chicheley Hall on "Antimicrobial resistance: how can physicists help?". Many thanks to everyone who participated.
