Sami is a member of the Theory of Biological Systems group headed by Dr Richard G Morris. His current research interests are in applying ideas from theoretical physics and applied mathematics to problems in developmental and mechano biology. He hopes to use these methods to better understand the interplay between geometry, forces and cell signalling, and to provide useful quantitative tools and theory for experimental biologists. His PhD research focused on using concepts from soft matter physics, differential geometry and hydrodynamics to understand the dynamics of lipid membrane tubes in a variety of conditions mimicking cellular processes.
