Dr Clinton H. Durney

Postdoctoral Scientist Genes in the Environment

Clinton is interested in the interplay between cellular signalling and cellular mechanics and explores such feedback mechanisms through computational modelling.

He explores the interplay of cellular signaling and cellular mechanics during morphogenetic processes and normal cell functioning using tools from computational biology and applied mathematics. He is currently working on understanding the mechanical properties of 2 and 4-cell stomata and their role in regulating photosynthesis and gas exchange.

Previously, he worked on various morphogenetic events in Drosophila melanogaster using cell-based computational modelling.
