Dr Azevedo

Dr Helena Azevedo
MEng, PhD

Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering & Biomaterials
Molecular self-assembly, the spontaneous organization of molecules into ordered aggregates by noncovalent interactions and without external control, is of central importance to life (e.g., protein folding, formation of lipid bilayers). Using biological inspiration and tools of chemistry, physics and engineering, we aim to explore new (macro)molecular units (peptides and sugar polymers) mimicking the composition and structure of carbohydrates and proteins (vital constituents of all organisms) to develop materials by self-assembly with particular properties and function for bioengineering applications. We expect that combinations of these building blocks and their controlled self-assembly can generate the discovery of innovative biomaterials with ...

MSci, PhD

Lecturer in Bioengineering
My research aims to understand how different movements are achieved across a variety of steady and non-steady tasks; in particular, how the mechanics and muscles are used to control movement. I apply this knowledge to differentiate healthy gait from injury and disease, by identifying these fundamental control priorities. Identification of these control priorities, and using these to discover markers for disease severity will help assess the effectiveness of different treatment interventions for gait deficits. Non-steady tasks, such as walking over obstacles are key to identifying these underlying control parameters.

Setting up a new research group and Division of Chemical Engineering with focus on energy engineering. My research is in soft matter, energy, flow and transport of complex fluids in confinement (porous media), multi-scale imaging and simulation. I investigate how the macroscopic behaviour of complex systems emerges from the underlying microscopic behaviour. I have a solid research track record in two-phase and reactive flow in porous media, with applications in clean fossil fuels, CO2 storage and asphaltene deposition. In my new role at QMUL, I will be extending these applications to renewable energy, battery design, fuel cells and supercapacitors. I ...

Lecturer
My research is focused on experimental analysis of fluid flows, often using a combination of flow measurements techniques (e.g. Particle-Image Velocimetry, visualisation) and post-processing methods (e.g. Lagrangian analysis) to identify the underlying physics of a problem. Much of my work can be grouped into three main areas; flow-induced vibration, mixing/processing of complex (non-Newtonian) fluids and thermal convection. These problems have a wide range of applications across science and industry, and I regularly collaborate with process engineers, numerical modellers, mathematicians, rheologists and geophysicists.

I am interested in developing materials for energy applications, in particular for fuel synthesis. When solid materials are of very small particles their properties (such as colour, electric conductivity. etc.) starts to depend on the particle size. My main goal is to achieve control of the properties of materials by controlling their particle size and shape. There are various ways to control particle size, and in my approach templates of well-defined size and shape are used. The above templates are pores of a kind of material called metal-organic frameworks. This is a relatively new kind of materials and they can ...
