About me

I have been at UWE since 2002, employed as a Senior Lecturer in Human Genetics, within the Biomedical Sciences team. My key focus of teaching is in Medical Genetics, Genomic Technologies and Cellular Pathology & Oncology. I teach at all levels, including MSc, MRes, MSci and Doctoral programmes. I currently am the Programme leader for the Doctorate in Biomedical Sciences.

I have a specialism in genetic toxicology of stem cell transplantation, following training at Swansea University (Phd) and Bristol University (Post-Doc), with sabbaticals in The Insititute of Occupational Health Helsinki (PhD) and University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey, USA (Post Doc).

Area of expertise

I have research expertise in Genetic Toxicology, and focus on long term complications of the bone marrow following chemotherapy treatment and stem cell transplantation. I have a research team comprising 8 full time PhD students (as Director of Studies) and one as second supervisor, and one part-time doctoral students. Of these, three have been through viva and will shortly graduate.

We are currently focussing on developing more physiologically relevant models of the bone marrow and other tissues for assessment of toxicology and genetic toxicology. Recent work has focussed on developing multicellular 3D models of the human bone marrow, with pharmaceutical collaborators.
To date I have graduated 8 full time, and 5 part-time doctoral students, and am willing to consider students who wish to pursue research with me, who have personal funding and mutual research interests
