I lecture thermodynamics (to undergraduate chemical engineers). My research focuses on the biophysics of disease.
1) Understanding the behaviour of cancer cells in terms of tumour growth, metastasis and disease progression.
2) Targeting cancer using liposomes.
3) Creating an artificial cell.
4) Understanding antibiotic resistance.
5) Viral infection - in particular HIV and Influenza
