About the Author

Dr Thomas Andrew Waigh was a physics undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh and then completed a PhD in the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. This was followed by a two-year post-doc at the College de France in Paris, in the laboratory of Pierre Giles de Gennes. He then returned to the UK with a lectureship in physics at the University of Leeds. Currently, he is a senior lecturer in biological physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester. Previously, he has written two books on biological physics, Applied Biophysics and The Physics of Living Processes: a Mesoscopic Approach, published by Wiley. He has published more than 80 articles.
