Personal profile


Gavin is a National Biofilms Innovation Centre fellow working with Prof. Cait MacPhee and Prof. Rosalind Allen. Gavin studied Chemistry at Queen's University Belfast (QUB), moving to the Physics department to do his PhD in molecular modelling and computer simulations of porous
liquids. This work led to the design, synthesis, and characterisation of the first ever liquids of this kind.

At Edinburgh, Gavin uses a combination of experiments and computational simulations to investigate aggregation and collective phenomena in biofilm-forming bacteria such as the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the wastewater treatment bacteria Comamonas denitrificans.
