    Natasha Cowley - Postgraduate Researcher

    Photo of Tash Tash started her PhD in October 2016, funded by EPSRC/CRUK. She is part of a team working on a Cancer Research UK funded project investigating the metastisis of breast cancer cells to bone. She is modelling the movement of cells in the complex environments they encounter.

    Helen Pringle (née Marley) - Postgraduate Researcher

    Photo of Helen Helen started her PhD in 2017, funded by the EPSRC CDT in Polymers, Soft Matter and Colloids. She is studying the biopolymers in the cytoskeleton in neurons.

    Mehdi Ait Yahia - Postgraduate Researcher

    Photo of Mehdi Mehdi started his PhD in 2020, funded by EPSRC. He is working on the mechanics of cells and nuclei. This involves deveolping models for the actin cytoskeleton using analytical theory and computational simulations.
