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.

Congratulations to Cat Mills who has just submitted her PhD thesis "Competition between specialist and generalist species in computational and experimental model ecosystems"!
Our review paper "Challenges in microbial ecology: building predictive understanding of community function and dynamics" from our programme on Understanding Microbial Communities at the Isaac Newton Institute in 2014, appeared today in ISME Journal!
Bartek Waclaw and I are co-organizing 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.
