Profile summary

Professional biography


PhD Immunology 2013

BSc (Hons) Biochemistry 2007

Brief Biography

I am an immunologist who has particular research interest in ageing/health span and cancer biology. I use extracellular vesicles and engineered proteins to investigate the control of tissues and cellular communication in cancer progression and immune mediated tissue modeling.
