I am a research fellow and part time Ph.D researcher with the unconventional computing group. My work explores the use of slime mould as a polymorphic, polyfunctional unconventional computing substrate.

Other than unconventional computing, my research interests include biomedical science, high resolution/exotic microscopy techniques, micromanipulation of living tissues, electrophysiology and nanotechnology.

I am a state-registered biomedical scientist specialising in histopathology and am fellow of the Institute of Biomedical Science. I am also registered with the International Society of Protisologists and am recognized by the Health and Care Professions Council and Public Health England to practice cell culture techniques clinical biomedical science.

My interests include computer overclocking, chinchillas, modern Western philosophy (esp. Nietzche, Sartre and Rand) and motorbike riding.
