Biography

During my time as a researcher, I have investigated heart physiology and pathology on the macro- and microscale, making important contributions to a number of fields including dilated cardiomyopathy, congenital heart disorders, and human physiology. I have achieved this through the initiation of successful international and cross-disciplinary research collaborations and believe that the ability to connect with diverse groups of people through infectious enthusiasm and effective communication is one of my key strengths. I am a highly active science communicator and have presented at New Scientist Live, Pint of Science and the British Science festival. I also serve as a member of the public engagement focus group, which is responsible for organising and facilitating the ICH Christmas Lectures and the BRC Family Fun Day.

Research Summary

My research is undertaken in the Molecular Neurosciences Department at the Institute of Child Health under the supervision of Dr Federica Montanaro, where I am investigating mechanisms of heart failure in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and how existing gene therapies might be augmented to improve heart health in this setting.


Teaching Summary

At UCL ICH I am the recently appointed co-director of the MRes in Child Health. Other teaching duties include project supervision of students on the MSc in Cell and Gene Therapy .

 

I also taught extensively as a PhD student and Post-doctoral researcher at King's College London where the highlight of my teaching experience was for the extreme physiology final year BSc module where I taught practical classes on cardiovascular responses to diving, hot environments and augmented vertical G forces.
