I completed my PhD in Regenerative Medicine at Newcastle University where I investigated large scale tissue regeneration and developed methods in tissue engineering. I then proceeded to work with the North East Cancer Institute (Newcastle University) and the Great North Children's hospital, leading onto a collaboration with the Brain Repair and Intracranial Neurotherapeutics (BRAIN) unit in Cardiff, Wales.
I joined Kingston University in 2020 as a Senior Lecturer specialising in Clinical Chemistry and Neurotoxicity.
My current research interests focus on identifying and repairing damage to dopaminergic networks caused by disease or toxicity relevant to Parkinson's Disease, addiction, and reward behaviours. I also investigate aggressive stem cell cancers such as neuroblastoma.
