Research Summary

My research interests are strongly interdisciplinary.  I am a member of the British Pharmacological Society (BPS) and I am one of the BPS team that runs their ‘General and Advanced Receptor Theory’ course.  However, I also work in UCL’s Department of Computer Science as one of the Directors of CoMPLEX a flagship interdisciplinary science centre. (As a result of this latter activity, in 2017 I joined the EPSRC review of complexity science.)   Work in my laboratory can be divided into several areas. First, we aim to understand the molecular composition, pharmacology and physiological role of potassium channels. A second theme for my laboratory is developing new biophysical methods, particularly in relation to developing the use of scanning ion conductance microscopy as a tool for studying biology. Finally, we are using biophysical, electrophysiological and systems modelling techniques to examine epithelial cells in health and disease.  This work is in collaboration with Paola Vergani, Vivek Dua and Marco Radi.

Teaching Summary

At graduate level I teach in both CoMPLEX (UCL's flagship interdisciplinary graduate training centre) and LiDO.  At undergraduate level I teach and organise the 1st year pharmacology module 'An Introduction to Mechanisms of Drug Action'.  In years 3/4year I teach on Receptor Mechanisms and Molecular Pharmacology whist I also contribute to the preclinical training of medical students.
