I graduated with degrees in Biology (BSc, 2009) and Neuroscience (MSc, 2010) before completing my PhD (2015) at the School of Biosciences in University of Birmingham. Subsequently I joined in July 2016.
At UBD, I am currently building a research focus area using computational tools. Within IHS, I am actively teaching in the Biomedical Sciences and Medicine programmes, which includes being a tutor to medical students, module convenor of HB-4216 Transfusion Science, and co-convenor of HB-3221 Cellular Pathology. When I am not researching and teaching, I host "PAPRSB IHS CPD Seminar Series" and manage IHS Website. I am a member of IHS Beyond Newsletter Team too. Every Thursday, I enjoy tending to my secondment role at UBD's Entrepreneurship Village.
I enjoy working together with others. So, if you feel that we share same goals and objectives, please feel welcome to have a chat about collaborations.
