Reham Gonnah


I graduated with first class honours in Biomedical Engineering from Queen Mary University of London in 2021. Following that, I moved to Leeds to start my PhD project which is a collaboration between the University of Leeds (School of Dentistry) and Diamond Light Source, funded by a Leeds-Diamond studentship.

My project is focused on using X-ray techniques to characterise the use of self-assembling peptides for enamel remineralisation. At Diamond, I am working on the development of an in situ sample environment in order to study the dynamic enamel remineralisation process in real-time under near-physiological conditions. 

Research interests

I am particularly interested in multi-modal characterisation using electron microscopy and X-ray techniques, biomaterials for biomineralisation, and hard tissue engineering.
