My research project
Models for cellular force generation and the cell-substrate interface
I am a PhD student at the University of Surrey, working under the supervision of Dr Carina Dunlop. My PhD project focuses on developing mathematical models to describe the physical forces exerted by a cell when adhered to a gel layer to elucidate the interplay between cellular dynamics and the mechanical microenvironment.
Previously, I did the MSc programme in Mathematical Modeling at the University of Birmingham, focusing on mathematical biology and fluid dynamics, with my masters' project supervised by Dr Tom Montenegro-Johnson. My undergraduate degree was in Pure and Applied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge.
