Whilst studying artificial intelligence at Edinburgh University I became fascinated by self organising systems, recurrent artificial neural networks, and harnessing the emergent properties that dynamically arise within these systems. After graduating, the allure of directly studying biological tissue from an engineering perspective drew me towards tissue engineering. At Imperial College London, I studied for my PhD in the Stevens group tissue engineering laboratory, developing equipment and establishing ideas and techniques. Research was focused on creating nano-structured and fibrous scaffold to support cell growth, and understanding how cellular interaction in three dimensions arose from the effects of the substrate on integrin clustering and cytoskeleton formation. My core belief is that it is essential to move beyond static snapshots and measures of cell behaviour and gain an in-depth understanding of tissue genesis and function as a dynamic multipartite symbiotic process. This can only be achieved through the development of integrated tissue-engineering techniques that continuously interface (monitor and control) with living tissue at both micro and sub-micron (focal-adhesion) length scales.
