I am a Cardiff University graduate with extensive postgraduate experience in facilitating human anatomy teaching. After completing my Biomedical Sciences BSc, I joined Emeritus Professor Daniela Riccardi's lab, where I investigated in vitro the activity of compounds aimed at treating pulmonary disorders like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
I then took the post of Teaching Associate at Cardiff University School of Biosciences, which included a half split of my responsibilities as a PhD position in the lab of Dr Renata Jurkowska. Here, I am investigating the role of novel regulators of repair and regeneration in human lung fibroblasts, hoping to discover the role of candidate genes strongly implicated in pulmonary disease dysfunctional repair.
