Personal profile

Research interests

I am the head of the Oral Nanoscience research group.

Our primary research interests are the development, characterisation and application of multifunctional clinical nanomaterials. Of particular interest are antimicrobial and antifungal technologies.

We are currently developing a novel antmicrobial technology based on chlorhexidine, which can be used in a wide range of dental and medical materials and devices. The technology is the subject of two patent applications and the development is supported by research council and Innovate UK funding.
