Profile

My interest in modelling disease in particular cancer, stemmed from undertaking my postgraduate MSc (Res) degree in Translational Oncology. I then furthered this by undertaking a PhD entitled, 'Investigating the role of tissue-engineered fibroblast-derived extracellular matrix in oral squamous cell carcinoma' supervised by Dr Colley and Professor Lambert. This was completed in 2020 in the School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield. Whereby I developed skills in tissue-engineering and disease modelling. I am now currently employed as PDRA working on the development and validation of tissue-engineered skin equivalents to detect skin irritation, and more recently the use of induced stem cells in modelling skin diseases (funded by EPSRC).

Research interests

My research interest combine novel tissue-engineering approaches to model cancer (oral/skin) as well as developing skin models to study genodermatoses. My aim is to combine more complex 3D tissue systems by using largely native dermis, and primary cell culture techniques.
