My scientific interests are based around meta-research and immune cell biology, particularly how immune cells are capable of performing wide ranging functions and how they adapt to different environmental cues. During my masters degree, I investigated the presence of fibroblast subtypes and the role of PGE2 signalling in fibrosis. I completed my PhD in the labs of Iwan Evans & Martin Zeidler at the University of Sheffield investigating the existence of macrophage subtypes in Drosophila. Following a brief post-doc in Cambridge, I am currently a postdoctoral researcher based in London, investigating the role of neutrophils and T-cells in ischaemia reperfusion injury (IRI).

In addition, I have active interests in science communication, open-access, career development and community building. I host the Preprints in Motion podcast where we highlight ECRs and the benefits of preprinting and founded the UK & EU postdoc community to provide a place for postdocs to support one-another and share resources. I have also featured on international radio stations (BBC Radio 4, ORF & German National radio) to communicate the importance of preprints in addition to having written for outlets such as The Scientist and the British Society for Cell Biology. I am currently a member of the scientific advisory board for Europe PMC.
