Personal profile

Teaching Activity

As a teaching focused academic I teach on a number of Bioscience modules both at UG and Masters level including Cellular Pathology and Essential laboratory skills. I tend to be involved in the teaching of practical laboratory skills for both UG and PG students.

I also teach on the Foundation in Science degree as the boioscience year lead and module leader on SE0HAP an introduction to human anatomy and physiology. 

Research Interests

I am intrested in cancer cachexia (weight loss) and have been investigating the role that tumour derived factors effect host metabolism. This has led to an intrest in metabolic disease in general. I am an experienced in vivo scientist with a background in Pharmacology and Biochemistry.

Administrative Roles

I am the Bioscience Health and Safety coordinator.

I am also a green champion with a keen interest in the enviromental impact of laboratories on HE's carbon footprint.
