2013 - Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science
His main research concerns Mechanosensitive channels, Ion channel, Biophysics, Lipid bilayer and Cell biology. His Mechanosensitive channels study is concerned with Biochemistry in general. His research in Ion channel intersects with topics in Mechanotransduction, Gating, Membrane potential and Analytical chemistry.
In his research, Ion transporter is intimately related to Voltage-gated ion channel, which falls under the overarching field of Biophysics. His study in Lipid bilayer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Vesicle and Bilayer. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of TRPC1, Escherichia coli Proteins, PIEZO1, Cytoskeleton and Neuroscience.
His primary areas of study are Mechanosensitive channels, Biophysics, Ion channel, Gating and Lipid bilayer. His research integrates issues of Mechanotransduction, Cell biology and Cell membrane in his study of Mechanosensitive channels. His Biophysics study combines topics in areas such as Membrane, Biochemistry, Liposome, Bilayer and Patch clamp.
He focuses mostly in the field of Ion channel, narrowing it down to matters related to Membrane protein and, in some cases, Membrane biology. His Gating research incorporates elements of Helix and Transmembrane domain. His research on Lipid bilayer often connects related topics like Nanotechnology.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Biophysics, Mechanosensitive channels, PIEZO1, Membrane and Ion channel. His Biophysics research includes elements of Cell, Cell type, Mechanosensation, Force spectroscopy and Membrane tension. His work deals with themes such as Pipette, Lipid bilayer and Channel gating, which intersect with Membrane tension.
His Mechanosensitive channels research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mechanotransduction, Gating, Neuroscience, Mechanobiology and Membrane lipids. The PIEZO1 study combines topics in areas such as Contractility, Cholesterol and Mechanosensitive ion channel. The concepts of his Ion channel study are interwoven with issues in Membrane biology, Bilayer, Transduction and Cell membrane.
