Research Expertise


I am a highly motivated researcher with interests in all areas of science and technology, with a particular interest in nanomaterials and their applications. During the course of my PhD I have been involved in the optimisation and validation of nanoparticle characterisation techniques, as well as the development of novel therapeutics for blood coagulation disorders. I have worked as part of multidisciplinary teams with both academia and industry, along with carrying out my own self-motivated chemical and biological research. I also have a growing interest in regulatory affairs brought about through my engagement with industry partners. I am currently acting as a post-doctoral research fellow aiding in the screening and assessment of novel nanomedicine products and devices.
