Personal profile


Jess is an Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University. Her interests lie at the interface of biology and engineering. By combining stem cell biology with biomaterials and bioengineering, Jess hopes to understand how cues from the physical microenvironment influence cell fate and then to apply this knowledge to improve stem cell culture for applications that promote the repair and regeneration of damaged body tissues, such as bone, cartilage and tendon.
