I am a postdoctoral researcher at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Edinburgh, in Professor Steve Pollard’s laboratory. I recently completed my PhD in Professor Pollard’s lab, where I am now continuing my research on the molecular drivers of cancer stem cells in an aggressive adult brain cancer called glioblastoma. I undertook my undergraduate and Masters studies in Natural Sciences (specialising in Biochemistry) at Churchill College, University of Cambridge.

I believe being able to communicate research effectively to audiences across specialisms is a vital skill for any scientist. I particularly enjoy scientific writing and I am keen whenever possible to use and improve my skills. Outside of the lab, I am an advocate of good health, both mental and physical, and enjoy cooking and baking for my colleagues.
