Former Members

Postdoctoral Researchers

Dr Annalaura Del Regno (2014-2016)

Dr David Bray (2011-2014)

Dr Daniel Jones (2010) Dan worked on the development of computational tools to model the interactions of silica nanoparticles with biological membranes (funded by the Institute of Advanced Study Capacity Building Competition). He then spent time as an HPC software developer based at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory before taking a PDRA position at the University of Oxford.

Hamdi Hussain (2014)

Victor Quan (2013) Victor carried out a MOAC MSc miniproject with us. He has now moved on to his PhD research.

Dan Simpson (2013) Dan carried out his MOAC MSc miniproject on molecular dynamics investigation of the interactions of therapeutic biomimetic peptides with cell membranes. He has now moved onto another miniproject.

Christine Lockey (2013) Christine carried out her MOAC MSc miniproject on simulations of keratin. She left the group to move on to her next miniproject.

Kirsty Gallemore (2012) Kirsty carried out her MOAC MSc miniproject on simulations of aquaporins. She has now moved on to her PhD project with Dr Ann Dixon and Dr Christophe Corre in the Department of Chemistry.

Philip Kitchen (2012) Philip carried out his MOAC MSc miniproject on simulations of aquaporins. He is now working towards his PhD.

Anthony Knight (2011) Anthony carried out his systems biology MSc miniproject on nanoparticle-mediated delivery of antimalarials. He his now working towards his PhD.

Jennifer Webb (2011) Jenny carried out her MOAC MSc miniproject on modelling the interactions of nanoparticles with biological membranes. We are very pleased that she has retured to us for her PhD project and is now working on the development of diamond nanopore technologies.

Sarah-Jane Richards (2011) Sarah-Jane carried out her MOAC MSc miniproject on modelling biomimetic antifreeze macromolecules. She is now working towards her PhD with Dr Matt Gibson in the Department of Chemistry.

Daniel Pearce (2010) Dan carried out his MOAC MSc miniproject on simulations of drug permeation through the skin. He is now working towards a PhD with Professor Matthew Turner in the Department of Physics.

Robert Deller (2010) Rob carried out his MOAC MSc miniproject on simulations of protein-DNA interactions. He is now working towards a PhD with Dr Matt Gibson on "Antifreeze Protein Mimics: Interactions with Cell Membranes and Cryopreservation of Stem Cells" in the Department of Chemistry.

Undergraduate Students

Oliver Unitt (2017-2018)

Elizabeth Evans (2017-2018)

Lucy Coleman (2015-2016)

Adam Hill (2013-2014)

Tom Thake (2012-2013) Tom carried out his MChem project on the permeation of polystyrene nanoparticles across model lipid bilayer membranes. He is now undertaking a PGCE at Warwick and is planning a career as a chemistry teacher.

Louis Granger (2012) Louis was awarded a bursary by the Undergraduate Research Student Scholarship Scheme (URSS) to work on simulations of the self-assembly of peptide amphiphile molecules into nanofibres. He will return to Warwick in October 2012 to complete the final year of his MChem degree.

Romnik Thind (2011-2012) Romnik carried out his MChem project on the permeation enhancing mechanism of ethanol in ceramide bilayers. After the summer break he will begin is PhD in Chemistry at Durham.

Malte Leuken (2010) Malte was awared a busary by the Undergraduate Research Student Scholarship Scheme (URSS) to work on a joint project with Dr David Quigley. He applied forward flux sampling techniques to calculate rates of nanoparticle transport across lipid membranes.

Visitors

Mariarosa Mazza (2010-2011) Mariarosa visited us from the (then) London School of Pharmacy to work on simulations of the self-assembly of peptide amphiphile molecules into nanofibres. She is now a PDRA in the nanomedine lab at the UCL School of Pharmacy.
