Department of Genetics

 
I am interested in understanding how physical forces shape biological structures.

Biography

I am a PhD student on the Wellcome Trust Developmental Mechanisms programme.

I am conducting my PhD project in the Steventon group. 

Bsc (1st Class Hons.) in Natural Sciences from UCL

 

 

 

 

Research

My reserach focuses on the role of mechanical forces in shaping tissues, organs and embryos.

During my PhD I have investigated how multi-tissue mechanical interactions in shape the zebrafish embryo body.
