Joseph Sherwood is currently a Research Fellow in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London. He has an MEng in Mechanical Engineering from King’s College London and a PhD in Biofluid Dynamics from University College London.

His research focuses on biofluid dynamics, with particular focus on experimental techniques to yield precise data on microscale biological flows. His current research interests include the effects of altered red blood cell properties in microvascular diseases and the role of aqueous humour flow in intraocular pressure regulation.
