I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool (UK). My research group focuses on nanoparticles, their structure, and applications, in particular for biological imaging. For more on our current research projects, team members and publications, check the group website.
My interests also extend to open science and the changes in modes of publishing. In the past few years, my involvement in the (continuing) stripy nanoparticles controversy has led me to realize how incredibly difficult it is to correct the scientific record.
CV in brief
1999-2002: PhD in physics, University Louis Pasteur (France) working on polymer adsorption with the Atomic Force Microscope (2002).
2002-2006: Post-doctoral positions at the University of Liverpool (Marie-Curie, then North West Cancer Research, then University of Liverpool Fellow).The main achievement of this period was the design and characterisation of peptides as capping agents for gold nanoparticles.
2006-2011: BBSRC David Phillips Fellowship to develop nanoparticle-based imaging in living cells, at the University of Liverpool. Further work on peptide-capped nanoparticles as well as their interactions with cells.
2011- now: Lecturer, then Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool. My teaching includes some basic mathematics and statistics for first year Biology students as well as critical and presentation skills for third year Biochemistry students.
