Jonathon (Joe) Howard is a biophysicist interested in how motor proteins and the cytoskeleton shape and move cells. He uses optical and mechanical techniques to study the behavior of individual molecules, and uses theory and computation to understand how molecular interactions give rise to coordinated, collective behavior at the cell level. After studying mathematics (B.Sc.) and neurobiology (Ph.D.) at the Australian National University in Canberra, he has moved around geographically—Bristol,...
