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.

Prof Knight

Prof Martin Knight
BEng, MSc, PhD, FHEA

Professor of Mechanobiology
My research is focussed on 'mechanobiology' or how living cells and tissues respond to physical forces. I am interested in the role of the cellular structures known as primary cilia. My group are investigating whether manipulation of cilia can be used as a therapeutic strategy. My work also explores the development of organ-on-a-chip models incorporating biomechanical stimulation for understanding human biology in health and disease and predicting the response to therapeutics. I work on a variety of different tissues such as cartilage, synovium, bone, kidney and artery, as well as diseases including osteoarthritis, cancer, atherosclerosis and inflammation.

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 Zawahreh

Dr Yousef  Zawahreh
BEng(Hons), PhD, PGCert, FHEA

Senior Lecturer in Engineering Materials & Design
My background is in materials, an area of that spans all other engineering disciplines (almost). My interests lie in identifying and commercialising design-related solutions that come from the boundaries between disciplines. Sustainability and healthcare are at the top of my list. Engineering education is another passion of mine. The current coronavirus pandemic upheaval has been challenging but perhaps in a good way. Innovation and progress are borne out of adversity and this situation is no different. I am extremely interested in how can we use this upheaval to advance engineering education in a post-COVID era.

PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Circadian biology in mechanosensitive cells: My current research investigates the interaction between physiological and pathological mechanical stimuli and the circadian clock in mechanosensitive cells, such as the cardiovascular system and musculoskeletal system. Bioenergetics and metabolism: I discovered the Crabtree metabolic phenotype in chondrocytes and studied the contribution of energy metabolism to chondrocyte phenotype. I devised my own techniques for characterizing the bioenergetic phenotype in living cells, which have been used to understand the metabolism of stem cells during differentiation, cartilage cells, cancer stem cells. Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine: Focusing on tissue engineering and cell therapies for cartilage repair.

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.

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.

I am currently working on an interdisciplinary CRUK-EPSRC funded project across both SEMS and Barts Cancer Institute. This work, in partnership with Emulate, aims to develop a new organ-on-a-chip model of breast cancer bone metastasis which we will use to study the interactions which occur between breast cancer and bone cells. We believe the interactions occurring between these two cell populations influences the metastatic nice and secondary tumour development with the hypothesis that osteocyte ciliogenesis is crucial during these stages.
