Research interests

My PhD project focuses on the development of cellular micromotors for improved management of ovarian cancer. I am also interested in improved management of cancer in general, concerning earlier and improved diagnosis, targeted drug delivery methods and personalised medicine. I am also interested in research concerning the racial and socioeconic disparities in the treatment and outcome of patients and what can be done to close these gaps.

Methodological knowledge

During my Master's degree I gained substantial experience of in vitro methodologies including tissue culture, Western blotting and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA). I also gained my Home Office personal licence for rats and mice. During my PhD project I will gain many more multidisciplinary techniques, including tissue culture using primary cells, multiple state-of-the-art imaging techniques, immunohistopathology and ex vivo/in situ work with mouse tissue.
