I am interested in immune cell biology, particularly how immune cells are capable of performing such wide ranging functions and how they adapt to different environmental cues such as glucose or hypoxia. During my masters degree, I investigated the presence of fibroblast subtypes and the role of PGE2 signalling in fibrosis. I completed my PhD in Iwan Evans’ lab at the University of Sheffield investigating the existence of macrophage subtypes in Drosophila. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher based in the William Harvey research institute, QMUL, where I am investigating the role of neutrophils and T-cells in ischaemia reperfusion injury. See more about the impact of my work here. I have a wide interests in immune cell biology, glycosylation and meta-research with a penchant for microscopy and big data.
I also take an active interest in science communication and open access and career development for ECRs.
