I joined the University of Sheffield in 2006 as a research technician where I completed a PhD in the Academic Unit of Nephrology in 2013 involving CDK/MEK inhibitors to inhibit fibrosis. In 2011 I joined the department of Clinical Oncology working on breast cancer and metastasis. I have multi-disciplinary, cross-sector experience having worked in industry between the years 2014-2018 in the AMR field before returning to the University of Sheffield and the study of breast cancer. My current research involves nanomedicine targeting of oncolytic viruses to metastatic tumours

Research interests

My research interests are focused on delivery of therapeutics to disseminated tumours. This includes nanoparticle formulations and the development of appropriate models for studying immunotherapies.
