I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Manchester in the lab of Dr Thomas Millard. My research goal is to define mechanism(s) of cell migration and routing in complex in vivo settings using the humble yet powerful fruit fly.
I completed my pre-doctoral studies at the University of Dundee (Scotland) under the supervision of Professor Arno Müller. During my PhD, being fascinated by cytoskeleton dynamics during cell division and cell migration, I contributed to the characterisation of the mitotic and post-mitotic functions of Drosophila Spindly.
