Research summary

I lead the UCL Applied Biomedical Engineering Group, based in Division of Medicine. The group is affiliated to the Research Department of Metabolism and Experimental Therapeutics and forms part of the Centre for Cardiovascular Biology and Medicine.

My research interests are centered on the application of biomedical engineering to provide healthcare solutions for debilitating conditions, which contribute to the UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing. To enable this, we have inter-disciplinary research collaborations with other UCL groups in the Faculties of Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematical & Physical Sciences, and Medical Sciences, as well as clinical and surgical collaborations at the affiliated University College London Hospital. The group works closely with the UCL Translational Research Office and UCL Business to facilitate clinical translation and commercialization of our exciting and innovative technology.
