About Me

Hello and welcome to my site!

My name is Richard Henshaw, an experimental biophysicist focusing in microfluidics, biophysics and soft matter.  I am currently undertaking a two-year postdoctoral position with Prof. Jeff Guasto at Tufts University (Boston, MA).

My PhD focused on cell responses to external stimuli, primarily light-induced, of green algae (specifically Micromonas pusilla and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii).   This was supervised by Dr. Marco Polin at the University of Warwick, where I also completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Physics (MMathPhys BSc).  Outside of academia I am a keen saxophonist and cyclist/triathlete on the rare occasions I misplace the bike and end up in a swimming pool!

I am always open to discussions and collaborations so if you want to get in touch please see the “Contact Me” page or you can message me on my LinkedIn page!
