Personal profile


My research focuses on host-pathogen interactions with medical devices. I am particularly intersted in P. aeruginosa, contact lens related infections and chronic wound infections. I am currently working on wound care in diabetic foot infections and a rapid point of care diagnostic to identify bacterial infections. 


I obtained a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry from the University of Sheffield and then went on to do a PhD in Pseudomonas aeruginosa molecular biology at the University of Cambridge, Emmanuel College.

I then moved to the University of Manchester to look at the effect of multi-purpose contact lens disinfecting solutions on tear proteins structure and function extracted from worn contact lenses. Since then I have worked in wound care on the effect of antibiotics released from a calcium sulfate void filling medical device on biofilms established in a collagen wound model.

I am currently a research fellow in the Division of Pharmacy and Optometry. 

Research interests

My research focus is on modelling the dermis and wound biofilms in vitro to examine the effects of antimicrobials in a wound like context. I am also developing a point of care diagnostic to identify bacteria in a clinical sample. I have collaborative projects developing an in vitro corneal model and looking at inflammatory markers in contact lens wear.
