Personal profile


An accomplished Biomedical Scientist with a 13-year track record in academic research and project management within the Life Sciences sector.

My research career has led to a profound understanding of drug mechanisms, their intricate interactions with cells, and their effects on mice, culminating in several published peer-reviewed papers. Beyond research, I have improved my administrative and project management skills, notably as a Financial Manager for the North-West Biotech Initiative (NWBI) committee, fostering networking between academia and industry. I am eager to utilise my skills and experience to make a significant contribution to the scientific community in a role that challenges me. I am confident in my ability to excel and drive impactful results.
