Personal profile

Research interests

My research explores the microstructure of living tissues and their response to changing and extreme environments; innovating methodologies for the capture, computational modelling, analysis and interpretation of data describing complex material and structural characterisation.

Biological anthropological applications of these methods include forensic identification, the regulation of hard tissue growth and development, and the study of biomechanical systems in extinct species. This includes exploring human evolution, and functional anatomy at the level of microstructur, osteoarchaeology, and the African diaspora, postcranial morphological variation within modern human populations, biomechanics of the spine in humans and other animal models, 

Engineering applications include employing the ontogeny of tissue microstructure as a model of programmed transformation in 4D materials, biomimetics in engineering design, and multi-scale modelling of complex hierarchical structures and systems.
