Research interests





I am particularly involved in teaching pharmacology to undergraduates on the BSc Pharmacology programme and have been Programme Director for this programme since 2021. I am an academic tutor to pharmacology students and run practical classes for first and second year students.

I deliver 5 lectures on Cellular Signalling to second year undergraduates taking the course BIOL21141 Cell Membrane Structure and Function, which serve as a detailed general introduction to this vast and fascinating subject. I also co-ordinate and lecture on the final year unit BIOL31602 Toxins, Toxicants and Toxicity.
