Team Members

Team overview

Our team includes 10 scientists based in the UK, including both research assistants and associates. Our newest group members joined us last month (February 2018). Last summer we also hosted 3 undergraduate students doing a summer project with us.

One post-doctoral level post in the group is based jointly in Oxford/Cambridge to provide a link to the experimental lab of Scott Waddell and give scientific direction to projects that would have particular impact on that lab's experimental work.
