PhD Candidate, Keele University

Graduated from Keele University in 2014 with the degree BSc (Hons) Biology with Psychology. Following this I joined the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training programme in Regenerative Medicine. After an initial training year based at Loughborough University, I now work on my PhD research project based at the Guy Hilton Research Centre within the Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine at Keele University.

My PhD specialises in Cell and Tissue Engineering of the eye, with the project title: Development of retina and conjunctiva models for better eye disease study and treatment.
