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 ...

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.

I am particularly interested in analysing both current nuclear reactors as well as those due to be built within the UK in the coming years, in particular the boiling water reactors. I am also heavily involved in the design of new mathematical models ...

I am particularly interested in understanding how and why they get injured, and looking at 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.

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 ...
