My research interests lie in understanding how cell microenvironments influence cell fate determination, and how we can control a cell’s microenvironment in vitro in order to produce cells and cell/material constructs for tissue engineering applications. We work with different material surface modifications, microfluidic channels providing gradients in cell-signaling molecules, and micro-and nanofabrication to pattern materials and cells, together with a range of cell types that are specific for each application area under study. Typical projects involve the study of cell attachment, spreading, migration, growth and differentiation in 2D and 3D environments.
