I joined the School of Life Sciences in 2010 from Cancer Research UK where I was undertaking research on signal transduction in B cells. Before that, I was a Senior Scientist at GlaxoSmithKline, and a postdoctoral researcher at UCL. I completed my PhD at the National Institute for Medical Research, following a BSc (Hons) degree at Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine.
In 2018, I became a member of the CATS Faculty Executive Group overseeing the Technical and Administrative Staff across the 6 Schools of the Faculty.
I am responsible for overseeing the management of the resources and Facilities, of the 6 Schools, within the CATS Faculty. I sit on the university's Space Management Group. I assist the Faculty to deliver on a number of projects and provide specialist knowledge and advice to projects including the new STEM building.
As part of my broad remit, which includes administrative duties, I am responsible for ensuring that the Faculty is health and safety (H&S) compliant. I Chair the Life Science's Health and Safety (H&S) meetings and I sit on the university H&S committee.
I am a STEM Ambassador and a keen champion of Outreach activities within the Faculty.
My background is in immune cell signal transduction, investigating how proteins interact with each other to communicate signals within a cell to elicit an effect. I have 15 years' experience of working in this field in both industry and academia. I continue my research interests within the School, working with Prof Jan Domin.
