Personal profile


Jess is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University. Her interests lie at the interface of biology and engineering. By combining aspects of biomaterials, stem cell biology and genomics, Jess hopes to understand how mesenchymal stem cells are guided by physical cues from their surrounding microenvironment and apply this knowledge to promote the repair and regeneration of damaged body tissues, such as bone and cartilage.
