After completing my PhD in Biomedical Sciences at Aston University, I became interested in the use of stem-cell derived models to study disease pathology. I am primarily trained in mammalian cell culture and molecular biology techniques. My current research interests lie in the use of molecular techniques to help screen for host factors involved in mediating norovirus infection in a human enteroid model.
MPhil Research Student
I obtained my BSc (Hons) in Virology from the University of Glasgow, where I was fascinated by molecular virology, in particular the approaches employed by different viruses to cause diseases. My current project is to identify potential host factors benefiting norovirus infection utilising the enteroid model.
