Siobhan Braybrook is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her lab uses multiple approaches including biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology and biophysics to study how shapes are generated in multicellular organisms with cell walls; plants and brown algae.
Braybrook received her Honors BSc in Plant Biology from the University of Guelph, Canada and her PhD in Molecular Plant Biology from the University of California, Davis in 2008. Braybrook then moved to Europe where she was a post-doc at the University of Bern, Switzerland. In 2013, she joined the University of Cambridge where she set up the Plant Mechanics Lab Group at the Sainsbury Laboratory. In 2017, Braybrook moved her lab to UCLA where she continues to study cell wall mechanics.
