My first degree was in BSc Chemical Engineering Technology (Hons.) in Bioprocess (2012). I then pursued an MSc in Biological and Bioprocess Engineering (2013) and eventually completed a multidisciplinary PhD at the University of Sheffield (2018). The doctoral research was exploring the functional role of specific chemokine receptor XCR1 and its bioengineered ligand in oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Before joining the NEOPATH research group, I worked as a researcher in a collaborative, multidisciplinary project focusing on tissue culture, tumour microenvironment and therapeutic intervention.

Research interests

My interest encompasses tumour microenvironment, diagnostic and therapeutic intervention, drug discovery, omics research, bioinformatics, and protein engineering

I am currently involved in multicentre research tackling clinical problems in head and neck cancer by utilising the multi-omics application and bioinformatics with Dr Ali Khurram and Professor Daniel Lambert. The project is part of the International Collaborative Research Grant (ICRG) funded by the British Council of Pakistan. 

I have been previously awarded research and travel grants, published collaborative research articles as well as presented my work nationally and internationally.
