I am a Professor of Biological Physics at the School of Physics and Astronomy,  Edinburgh University. I'm also a member of SynthSys, Edinburgh's Center for Synthetic and Systems Biology.  

My research focuses on biological and soft condensed matter physics, using simulations, theory and experiments. In particular, I  work on microbe-environment interactions - how single-celled organisms such as bacteria survive and grow in complex and changing environments. I am especially interested in how bacterial populations are inhibited by, and evolve resistance to, antibiotics, and how nutrient-cycling microbial ecosystems establish themselves and maintain their function.

You can find me at: 
Room 2507, James Clerk Maxwell Building
