Research interests

Development of droplet networks as tissue mimics





Bio

In parallel with my bachelor studies, I worked as a junior researcher at the group of Prof. Lucia Atehortua where I evaluated intracellular membranes upon in vitro culture conditions for 3 years. In 2012, I met Prof. Hagan Bayley and later on moved to the University of Oxford to commence a research project in Chemical Biology. After the completion of the project, I joined as a DPhil student in his lab. My work is a collaborative effort to understand the minimal conditions and molecular machinery required to retain the functionality of 3-dimensional tissues built upon droplet interface bilayers.
