I started my lecturing career in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calabar, Nigeria between 1980-84 after completing my PhD at North East London Polytechnic (now the University of East London). Prior to joining Kingston, I worked for more than 6 years as a Research Fellow in the Department of Histopathology at University College London and Middlesex School of Medicine. I joined Kingston University as a Senior Lecturer in Environmental Biology in 1991 and was promoted in 1997 to Principal Lecturer. I was appointed substantive Head of the School of Life Sciences in 2007, having previously been Acting Head (2004-07) and Acting Deputy Head (2002-04). I retired from the Head of School post at the end of July 2014, but returned part-time as Associate Professor in Life Sciences. I continued to teach on several biomedical science modules and helped supervise a number of postgraduate students. I finally retired from this position at the end of August 2022, but continue to advise several postgraduate students and maintain research links with Prof Modjtahedi and Prof Karlyshev.
