Research interests

We combine experiments with computer simulations to understand how the rates of reactions and mass transport influence processes in chemistry, biology and engineering. One particular interest of the group is the exploitation of feedback and self-organisation in complex chemical/biochemical systems for the development of novel bio-inspired materials, devices or sensors. Please see our group pages for more information on our research.
