Eleanor Stride holds a B.Eng. and Ph.D. from University College London. Following the completion of her PhD in 2005, she was appointed to a lectureship and a Royal Academy of Engineering and EPSRC Research Fellowship and subsequently a Readership in 2010. She joined the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in Oxford in October 2011 when she also became a Fellow of St. Catherine’s College.

Her research is focused in two complementary areas:

(1) Drug delivery systems engineering

Advanced encapsulation methods for the fabrication of drug carriers
Controlled release and biophysics of therapeutic delivery -Theranostics and treatment monitoring

(2) Biomedical ultrasonics

Engineering microbubble agents for diagnostic and therapeutic applications
Physics of cavitation in high intensity focused ultrasound
Biophysical effects of ultrasound
