Personal profile

Research interests

I am a cell biologist with research interests in wound healing, focusing on the role of gap junctions, and the influence of diabetes and fibrosis. I undertook my PhD in Reproductive Science and Medicine at Imperial College London (granted 2003), after which I was a Serono Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, moving to GCU in 2006 as Postdoctoral Research Fellow to Dr Patricia Martin. In 2014 I became a Lecturer in the Department of Life Sciences. I teach undergraduate and postgraduate cell biology, supervise PhD, MD and MRes students, and am tissue donor co-ordinator of the GCU Skin Research Tissue Bank. I contribute to the Molecular Mechanisms of Diabetes Research Group (https://www.gcu.ac.uk/hls/research/researchgroups/molecularmechanismsofdiabetes/).
