Background

Having completed a Biochemistry undergraduate course, my background revolves strongly around cell signalling, systems biology and drug discovery. I am particularly interested in how cellular inputs can influence particular outcomes in health and disease, with emphasis on cancer biology and pharmacology of the brain. My lab experience comprises a mixture of structural biology and cell culture work, with my Master's thesis pertaining to GCPR signalling and circadian rhythms. As a member of the British Pharmacological Society, I am an avid follower of latest research on drug development.

Interests

My research interests within the DTC are strongly related to the mathematical and computational aspects of the programme. Throughout the module stage, I plan to augment my biochemical expertise with the programming and mathematics course, culminating with a modelling or computer-based project. I believe in rational drug discovery and development and intend on utilising the tools given to me by the SABS module in order to join the pharmacological industry.

Research

Conferences

Attended and presented a poster at the Pharmacology 2015 conference.
