I am a theoretical biophysicist interested in developing and applying novel quantitative approaches to study complex biomolecular self-assembly phenomena across multiple length- and timescales, and, through this programme, to understand the characteristics of a range of diseases from their microscopic origins to their macroscopic manifestations. To address these questions, I exploit a combination of approaches rooted in statistical mechanics, soft matter physics, physical chemistry and applied mathematics, in close collaboration with experimentalists.
