Biography and previous work

I am currently in my fourth and final year of study for an MEng in Bioengineering, with a specialism in Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials Science.


Current work

Development of a Processing Method for Silk-Based PolyHIPEs

My Final Year Project aims to build on work already undertaken by the Natural Materials Group, by further refinining the process used to reliably produce a silk-based PolyHipe. I am doing this through further investigation in to the emulsification and curing processes involved.


Personal interests

When I'm not studying I can be found playing football, tennis or rugby; watching a good movie or cooking up a storm.
