My research covers the interface of diagnosis and characterisation of brain metastasis, spanning both pre-clinical models and patients
I obtained my undergraduate MBiochem from Trinity College, Oxford in 2004 and followed this with a period of working at both the Sanger Institute in Cambridge and the University of Essex. In 2007, I moved to Warwick to begin my PhD in Paul Thornalley's laboratory working on diabetic kidney complications. After completion, I moved to Oxford to work on early diagnosis of brain metastasis with Nicola Sibson in the Experimental Neuroimaging Group, part of the Department of Oncology.
I primarily work with pre-clinical MRI systems as well as NMR systems for biofluid analysis from patients. I have expertise with multivariate statistical analysis techniques such as PLS-DA and I am also adept at immunohistochemical staining and subsequent image analysis. In addition to this, I have a wide range of other technical expertise which I have listed, together with my computing expertise as it pertains to biological research, on a separate Technical Expertise page.
