Senior Lecturer, Department of Life Sciences, University of Westminster

I am currently a senior lecturer in Pharmacology at the University of Westminster, London UK.

My previous posts include: Lecturer and Coulson Trust Fellow (University of Leicester, UK), Vice Chancellor Fellow (University of Surrey, UK) and the Fogarty Fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA.

I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology (FRSB).

My areas of expertise includes molecular cardiology, cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure, circadian biology, circadian clock genes, pineal gland, and the hormone melatonin.

Using a multi-disciplinary approach (molecular, cell, organ and animal models), our focus is to identify and delineate novel gene regulatory networks in cardiac function and unravel mechanisms that control the expression of those genes critical to heart function, disease and human health, in particular cardiac hypertrophy, arrhythmia and heart failure.
