Dr Barbieri

Dr Ettore Barbieri
Dott. Ing. , PhD, FHEA

Honorary Senior Lecturer in Modelling and Simulation of Engineering Systems
We are interested in mechanics of materials, how they deform under loading, and ultimately, how they break. We use computer simulations to predict when this happens. We use commercial software when we can, but often we have to write our software. We have experience in a wide range of materials, from engineering (metals, rubber, ceramics and composites) to biological (bones). Sometimes we take inspiration from nature and the arts to invent new structures.

Dr Botto

Dr Lorenzo Botto
PhD

Visiting Reader in Fluid Mechanics (primary affiliation: Process & Energy Dept., TU Delft, Netherlands)
I am the leader of the Fluids, Particles and Interfaces Group (https://bottogroup.wordpress.com/). I am interested in fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, with particular focus on topics at the interface between classical fluid dynamics and materials science. My group uses simulations and theory, often corroborated by experimental results, to uncover fundamental engineering principles that can be applied to practical problems, in areas such as advanced materials, bioengineering, and energy engineering. Recurring topics of research in the group are the dynamics of particulate materials (suspensions, emulsions, powders, etc.) and the mechanics of soft interfaces. I lead the "Fluid Mechanics of Nanostructured Materials" Special Interest Group of the EPSRC-funded UK Fluids Network.

Professor of Mechanobiology, Director of Research
My research is focussed on 'mechanobiology' or how living cells and tissues respond to physical forces. In particular I am interested in the role of the fascinating cellular structure known as the primary cilium (cilia in plural). My work also explores the development of organ-on-a-chip models incorporating biomechanical stimulation for predicting the performance of pharmaceuticals. I work on a variety of different diseases including osteoarthritis, tendonopathy and cancer and the development of novel therapeutics.

Prof Screen

Prof Hazel Screen
BEng MRes PhD(Lond) CEng

Professor of Biomedical Engineering
My research aims to understand how our tissues are built to be able to withstand the loads they experience in the body. I am particularly interested in understanding tendon and heart valve; how and why they get injured, and ways to prevent this happening. By looking at the ways a tissue is supposed to work when it is healthy, we can identify how small changes in the structure, such as those which occur with age, can make injury more likely and look to prevent or treat these specifically.

Dr Kamal

Dr Catherine Kamal
Ph.D, MSci.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant
I apply mathematical modelling to engineering challenges relating to soft particles, capsules or vesicles in liquids, with an aim to create testable models of the materials in flow for advance in industrial application. For example, an understanding on the characterisation over the state of aggregation, shape or orientation of the soft nanoparticles in flow could identify new methods used to charactering and sort nanoparticles by their thickness and aspect ratio. Such size and thickness is essential for optimising applications such as polymer reinforcement. I am also interested in modelling physical singularities, such as those involved in moving contact lines.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant
My research focuses on the vascular biology and vascular engineering. Particular interest goes to the endothelial glycocalyx, a protective layer along the luminal surface of the blood vessel. I aim to elucidate how the glycocalyx develops and sheds under healthy and diseased vascular conditions. I also work on endothelial mechanics and directional cell migration on different types of substrate, with the ultimate gold of understanding the process of vascular stiffening and aging.
