I am a Research Associate in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. My current project involves the engineering of nanomedicines for the treatment of glioblastoma. In 2015 I was awarded a PhD degree in Neuroscience by the University of Bristol. During my PhD I developed and applied novel molecular tools to study astrocyte-to- neurone communication in the brain. Prior to my PhD studies I worked as a Research Technician in the School of Physiology-Pharmacology, University of Bristol for three years.
My key research interests include brain tumour, pharmaceutical nanotechnology, peptide engineering, and drug delivery.
