Personal profile


I did my BSc in Biochemistry & Genetics (1994-1997) and my PhD (1997-2001) in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds. I then worked as a post-doctoral research fellow firstly at the Cancer research UK Clinical centre, St James's Hospital in Leeds (2001-2005) and then at the Jack Birch Unit of Molecular Carcinogenesis, Department of Biology, University of York (2005-2008).

Research Expertise and Interests

  • Studying the signalling cues that regulate cell survival versus death using appropriate epithelial cell models
  • Understanding the cellular responses to death (apoptosis) signals triggered by members of the TNF Receptor protein family
  • Exploring the underlying cell signalling mechanisms of a) chemotherapy-induced hair loss (alopecia) and b) defective wound healing
