Ben Shirt-Ediss

I am Research Associate in Computational Nanobiology in the ICOS group at Newcastle University, UK. I am currently involved with modelling DNA nanodevices for Synthetic Biology applications.

My doctoral thesis was centred on the origins of cellular life problem, where I argued that the emergence of cellular life should be tackled from the view point of the emergence of autonomous protocell systems.
