Dr Shane Windsor

Biography

Dr Windsor obtained a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Auckland in New Zealand. After a period as a researcher at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute, he studied for a PhD in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Auckland looking at the fluid mechanics of how fish are able to use fluid flows to sense their surroundings.

After completing his PhD in 2008, Dr Windsor moved to the University of Oxford where he developed image analysis techniques for measuring the flow of cytoplasm within cells, with application for improving the success rate of in vitro fertilisation (IVF).  Following this, as a postdoctoral researcher with the Oxford Animal Flight Group, he studied the dynamics of flight control in birds and insects.  Dr Windsor then took up the position of lecturer in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol in June 2013.
