Biography

I did my PhD at the Institute of Biotechnology and University of Helsinki, Finland, combining developmental neurobiology and glycobiology to study mechanisms of syndecan-3 mediated neurite outgrowth using mammalian models. As an EMBO Long-Term Fellow and subsequently as a Wellcome Trust Advanced Training Fellow at the University of Birmingham, I translated my cell biology and biochemistry background into the use of the nematode C. elegans as a genetic model organism. As an MRC New Investigator at the University of Liverpool, my research interest into glycosylated membrane proteins expanded from heparan sulphate proteoglycans to fibroblast growth factor (FGF) and Klotho signalling in development and metabolic physiology. In December 2012 I was appointed as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Huddersfield.
