I was awarded my PhD from Imperial College London and after postdocs at University of Southampton, Kings College London and the University of Surrey I started my independent research career as a lecturer at Kingston University in 2010.
My main research focus is on the regulation of lipid metabolism in health and disease. I am particularly interested in mechanisms of disease promotion where dysregulated lipid metabolism contributes to disease processes. This includes aspects of lipid metabolism in cancer, obesity and dementia. My research utilises a combination of analytical (mass spectrometry) through the use of stable isotopes and molecular techniques to characterise metabolism. I am currently investigating differences in the utilisation of fats by different pancreatic cancer cell lines.
I regularly supervise undergraduate and postgraduate student research projects and currently supervise and co-supervise three PhD students working on cancer biology and metabolism as well as dysmetabolic iron overload.
I lecture on undergraduate modules covering topics including research methods, human physiology and the development of chronic diseases. I currently hold the position of Senior lecturer in the Department of Bimolecular Sciences within the School of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry.
