Philip Wijesinghe


Philip is a PhD student with a background in Physiology and Electrical & Electronic Engineering from The University of Western Australia. Philip’s research is focused on developing methods and tools to characterise tissue and cellular biomechanics on the micro-scale, and translating them into the hands of biologists. Philip is interested in working across disciplines, learning and incorporating different fields into his work, for coding to fundamental biology. Beyond research, Philip is interested in hacking up old equipment and cheap parts into creative tools for biology, having built a cheap 3D printer and microscopes.
