Research Interests

In October 2014, I joined the Braybrook group with the aim of understanding the mechanistic properties of cell wall composites. My project will focus on creating artificial cell wall structures out of various bacterial and algal polysaccharides, with the aim of creating tailor made cell wall composites for medical use. I will also be investigating the role of cell walls in a marine environment.
