My first degree was in Applied Biology at the University of Hatfield I then went on to do a PhD at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne researching the mechanism of novel epithelial chloride channel blockers. I then worked at the University of Manchester in the Departments of Medicine and Pharmacy investigating intestinal drug absorption using in vitro models. After that I moved to Dundee University where my main research interest was ion transport across the lung epithelia. I returned to work in the Department of Pharmacy at Manchester and continued my interest in intestinal drug absorption and the role of P-glycoprotein. Most recently I have worked in the Department of Translational Medicine in Manchester investigating intestinal inflammation and the importance of the interaction between P-glycoprotein and the enteric micro-flora.

I was appointed as a Lecturer in Biological Sciences at Huddersfield in 2008 my main teaching is Cellular and Molecular Biology to MPharm students.
