Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire. I currently lead the Neuroscience module for the UK track of the American University of the Caribbean medical school, preparing students to take the USLME medical examinations to qualify as physicians in the United States.
I previously served as a postdoctoral researcher and teaching fellow at the University of Freiburg Institute of Anatomy and Cell Biology; my research centred on the molecular underpinnings of neurodevelopmental disorders. I taught Human Anatomy and Epigenetics for the Human Medicine and Biology programmes, and I designed and delivered neuroscience and molecular medicine courses for the University College Freiburg's degree programme in Liberal Arts and Sciences.
I completed my doctorate in biology at the University of Freiburg, Germany, studying the genetic and epigenetic dynamics underlying the development of glioblastoma, a highly aggressive form of brain cancer. I studied for my master's degree in neuroscience at the University of Strasbourg, France and my bachelor's degree in psychology and sociology from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
