Postdoctoral Research Scientist
I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Professor Riley's group funded by the University of Oxford's John Fell Fund as part of a collaboration with Professors Ruth Baker and Sarah Waters at the Mathematical Institute. The aim of this collaborative project is to utilise advanced quantitative imaging techniques for the development of mathematical models to enhance the identification and understanding of core mechanisms driving organ fibrosis.
I undertook my PhD training with the CDT in Advanced Therapeutics & Nanomedicine at the University of Nottingham (2018-2023). During my research, I investigated mechanisms influencing macrophage fusion and fibroblast interactions in the development of an in vitro model of the foreign body response for use in drug delivery applications. Prior to my PhD studies, I graduated in Pharmacy (MPharm) from the University of Portsmouth in 2016 and obtained my GPhC professional registration at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust where I continued working as a clinical pharmacist.
