Personal profile


I first completed an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Aberdeen, which was followed by Doctoral research at the University of Newcastle. Within the Epithelial Research Group, I investigated the regulation of ATP binding cassette (ABC) transporters by the pregnane X receptor. This was followed by a Postdoctoral Fellowship with AstraZeneca, developing a modified Ussing chamber system to investigate cross-species intestinal absorption.

Returning to academic research, I spent 4 years working with Professor Ralf Paus at the University of Manchester. Here I developed an interest in cutaneous biology, specifically investigating mechanisms for hair follicle defence against endogenous and exogenous stressors, including oxidative and xenobiotic. In 2015 I joined the University of Huddersfield as a Senior Lecturer in Biological Sciences where I continue research into my twin interests of skin biology and active transport processes.
