PhD Candidate, Lancaster University

I am an Anatomical Society funded PhD student at Lancaster University. My PhD research examines the relationship between bone and fat cells within the marrow cavity, focusing on joint diseases like osteoarthritis. Additionally, I teach anatomy and histology to first year medical students.

Prior to my PhD, I was a Biomedical Scientist working within a Cellular Pathology laboratory in the NHS.
