I studied Biomedical Sciences at Lincoln College, Oxford as an undergraduate. For my final honour school research project I worked in the De Wet group imaging murine gut sections using immunofluorescence and correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). After graduating I gained further laboratory experience through an internship at the Instituto Butantan, Sao Paulo followed by an internship at the University of Santiago de Compostela, where I worked on metabolic phenotyping under the supervision of Dr Pamela Lear.
In October 2017 I returned to the De Wet group to start my DPhil. My research focuses on understanding the role of ABCC5 in enteroendocrine L-cells. I am using a combination of in vivo cell work and whole-body physiology analysis to investigate this.
