Stuart’s research focuses on developing mathematical models to describe the interaction between synthesised nanoparticles and proteins present in culture media or serum, as well as developing models of nanoparticle endocytosis. Such models allow for the elucidation of the key nanoparticle characteristics that influence the processes governing cellular uptake of the nanoparticles. Additionally, these models may give rise to predictions regarding the cellular uptake rate for particular cell-nanoparticle combinations.
Stuart joined the Centre in 2017 as a postdoctoral research fellow working with Professor Edmund Crampin
. Stuart undertook both his bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics and his PhD in applied mathematics at the Queensland University of Technology.
