Francis
Woodhouse


I am a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College within the University of Cambridge, working in mathematical biology and biophysics.

Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at The University of Western Australia for two years. 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.
