I am interested in the roles metabolism and the immune system play in disease progression. In particular, I focus on the aberrant cell signalling pathways that lead to chronic inflammatory diseases and resistance to chemotherapy in cancer. I obtained my BSc in Medical Microbiology from King’s College London and was awarded a PhD from Swansea University Medical School for investigating the role inflammation plays in throat cancer progression. I am a Senior Lecturer for our Genetics and Biochemistry Degree programmes and a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy. I teach Human Immunology, Medical Genetics (Module coordinator), Biomedical techniques (Module coordinator) and Cancer Immunotherapy to BSc and Masters students.
