Personal profile


I graduated with a First Class degree in MSci Biochemistry at The University of Manchester in 2019. My Master's research project focused on the role of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) in the development of breast cancer due to increased mammographic density using a 3D cell culture system.

I am currently undertaking a PhD sponsored by the Walgreens Boots Alliance in the Division of Cell Matrix Biology & Regenerative Medicine. The PhD project is titled 'Promoting tissue repair with natrual cell-signalling peptides' with a heavy focus on repairing age-related damage on the skin. This research is driven by some recent compellling evidence indicating that bioactive ECM-derived peptides (matrikines) can promote synthesis of new matrix proteins. Optimisation of a 3D cell culture system for human dermal fibroblasts is currently in progress.

In addition to this academic work, I am a tutor for the Manchester Access Programme, and was Highly Commended for Best Contribution to PGR Environment in 2021. I am the founder and chair for the LGBTQ+ PGR network within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.
