I am a cell biologist and physiologist with an interest in how cells and tissues make the decisions that support homeostasis, phenotypic changes and adaptation in health and disease. I have interests in the primary cilium and how mechanical forces are integrated into cell and tissue signalling programs particularly in the musculoskeletal system. As such the group is active in areas of fundmental discovery science but also disease areas such as chondrodysplasia and osteoarthritis.  

The lab uses a range of techniques including cell and molecular biology, multiscale imaging, the development of developmentally-inspired tissue engineering approaches, single cell and bulk RNA sequencing and in vivo models of development and disease.
