Nargess Khalilgharibi

I am a PhD student at UCL's Centre for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology (CoMPLEX)

I completed my undergraduate studies in my home country, Iran, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Sharif University of Technology. I joined the combined MRes/PhD programme at CoMPLEX in September 2011, where as part of the MRes year, I did a number of projects and generic skills tasks.

I am interested in combining experimental and mathematical/computational techniques to investigate the difference between living and non-living structures. My current research involves studying the mechanical behaviour of living monolayer tissues in short time-scales. I also have an intense appreciation for art and literature.
