Currently a post doctoral research assistant in cancer pharmacology under the supervision of Professor Roger Phillips, 

Came to the university of Huddersfield with little qualifications in 2007 completed science foundation, went on to complete MPharm 2008-2012 became a pharmacist in 2013, in the same year  I started my PhD, again at The University of Huddersfield titled "Pre-clinical Evaluation of Novel Inorganic Compounds as Potential Anticancer Therapies"  and gained my doctorate in early 2018. 

As a post doctoral research assistant I work with a number of universities including Warwick, Leeds, Shillong India and with groups internally at The University of Huddersfield, testing potential anti cancer compounds using  a novel  in vitro phenotypic drug screening tool selecting compounds based on not only potency but selectivity.  

I also uphold part time roles as a clinical pharmacist and a BTEC science tutor to Pharmacy Technicians.
