Research Keywords

synchrotron x-ray scattering, biomineralization, dental hard tissues, protein binding, neutron scattering

Research Interests

My research interests focus on combining in-house physical techniques and central facilities such as neutron scattering and synchrotron x-ray diffraction techniques in the exploration of tooth structure and formation. This includes characterizing healthy developing enamel, carious enamel, de- and re-mineralization of enamel. I characterise protein adsorption events involved in biomineralization and implant acceptance; and I am interested in synthesizing novel biomimetic hydroxyapatite surfaces. I regularly secure neutron and synchrotron beamtime at facilties in Europe and USA, and my research has been sponsored by research councils (EPSRC, MRC) charities (Wellcome Trust, Climb),  industry, and internal QMUL grants (DBI, LSI).
