I am interested in the role of biomechanical cues on the progression of cancer. There is increasing evidence that extrinsic mechanical stimuli change cellular behavior and cells can communicate via mechanical signals. My PhD project is focused on the mechanics of cancer cell division and invasion, both in terms of differences between cancer and noncancerous cells but also the mechanical interaction between cancer cells and their microenvironment.
