About Me

I am a scientist working on the theoretical description of soft condensed matter and biological systems. I am a lecturer in the Theory of Condensed Matter Group, part of Cambridge University's Cavendish Laboratory. I also hold two research fellowships, one awarded by Trinity Hall, Cambridge and one awarded by the 1851 Royal Commission.

I recently spent a couple of years working on elasticity, growth and morphogenesis with L. Mahadevan in Harvard University's Applied Math Laboratory. Before that I completed a PhD on liquid-crystal rubber supervised by Mark Warner which included an extended visit to Caltech's Mechanical Engineering Department to collaborate with Kaushik Bhattatcharya.

Don't confuse me with my Dad, Prof. John D. Biggins, whose website can be found here.
