I completed my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science with a First Class Honours at Northumbria University. Having thoroughly enjoyed the experience of scientific research through my dissertation project entitled ‘DNA sample analysis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis’, this lead me to pursue my interests in tissue fibrosis and inflammation. I joined the Fibrosis Research Group in January 2015 following enrolment upon the MRes Medical and Molecular Bioscience course at Newcastle University.

I am now embarking on my PhD entitled ‘Mitochondrial function in liver regeneration’ supervised by Dr Fiona Oakley and Dr Laura Greaves of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research. Here I hope to elucidate the link between mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation in cellular regeneration and ageing.

I am delighted to be part of a very exciting cross-disciplinary area of research and proud to be continuing my career in active research at both the Fibrosis Research Group and Wellcome Trust Centre.
