Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries, University of Portsmouth

Senior Research Fellow in Enterprise and Innovation in the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries. A scientist by training, having previously worked in the music business, now working across disciplines and using creative methodologies to develop health and well-being innovations as well as outputs for public engagement and dissemination.

I joined the E&I team at the beginning of 2016. Prior to that I obtained a degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Brighton, followed by a PhD investigating hypoxia as a target for drug combination therapy of liver cancer. I then worked as a Research Fellow at UoB on a number of research projects, including the development of biomaterials and wound dressings. I am currently working on a number of funded international research projects and in the development of new bids focused on the University research theme health and well-being.
