I first started working at the University of Sheffield in 2003, directly after my undergraduate degree finished, in Professor Ingunn Holen’s group working on the role of bisphosphonates on breast cancer cells and the bone environment.  It was here that I completed my MPhil in 2009.

In 2012, I moved into Professor Gill Tozer’s group to work on tumour microcirculation, and in particular the role of fibrosis in specific VEGF expressing cells working under Dr. Will English.

I am currently working on the role of saracatinib on bone tumours with Dr. David Andrew (Neurology, Dental School), Professor. Ingunn Holen and Dr. Dan Lambert.

Research interests

My main research interests are tumour/ bone environment, western blotting and flow cytometry.

Current project: The role of Saracatinib (src inhibitor) on bone pain.
