University of Sheffield

I am currently studying for my PhD at the University of Sheffield, using zebrafish embryos to model a human disease called Adams-Oliver Syndrome. My PhD work focuses on cardiac development and how congenital heart defects arise, alongside the roles of non-coding RNAs during development and the onset of disease. I have a broad interest in developmental biology and biomedical sciences, in particular human disease modelling, CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing and microscopy.
