Final year PhD student within the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Regenerative Medicine.

My research is focused on the development and application of photoresponsive hydrogels for 2D cell culture, particularly to study the biophysical regulation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). I am currently utilising a novel photoresponsive hydrogel with defined surface topography and photoswitchable stiffness to analyse the spatiotemporal regulation of MSCs.

Supervisory team: Dr Stephen Richardson, Dr Joe Swift and Dr Lu Shin Wong.
