Overview

I'm an Endocrinology & Diabetes NIHR Clinical Lecturer. I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester in 2019, having held an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship (MR/N021479/1; 2016-2019).

I spend half my time as a clinician at the Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism Centre at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (Oxford Road Campus). My research work is based within the Centre for Biological Timing (University of Manchester), and focuses on context-specificity of nuclear receptor and clock protein action, and how this serves to regulate energy metabolism.
