Francis
Woodhouse


I am a Hooke Research Fellow in the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, working in bio-inspired physics and networked systems.

I was previously a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, following a postdoctoral research post at The University of Western Australia. I read the Mathematical Tripos at Cambridge for both undergraduate and Part III, and stayed at Cambridge for my Ph.D. with Prof. Ray Goldstein on cytoplasmic streaming and self-organisation of active matter.
