Area of expertise

My current research focusses on the bone marrow stroma, investigating its role in resistance to chemotherapy. Working with Miss Liana Gynn, Dr Elizabeth Anderson and Dr Gareth Robinson, we are utilising a novel bioluminescent bacteria to investigate changes in chemosensitivity of leukaemic cells, collaborating with Dr Sarah Wexler at the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust.

The bone marrow stroma is also damaged by chemotherapy, with my recent research demonstrating that this is a long term effect, and may be an important long-term consideration for individuals undergoing chemotherapy.

Additionally, I am interested in more applied haematological research, with a current project alongside Prof Tony Killard and Dr Jo White, together with collaborators at the University of Rome, investigating the potential use of inexpensive, rapid, paper-based lateral flow diagnostic screening tests for coagulation disorders, particularly in resource-scarce and emergency settings.‚Äč

I also have a background working in the NHS as a Biomedical Scientist, and maintain my registration with the HCPC.
