Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research focus is the development of advanced diagnostic tools for the earlier diagnosis and targeted treatment of cancer. I work closely with clinicians to better understand clinical needs and with engineers and life scientists to develop solutions to these challenges.

Current funding supports research projects on the development of elasticity imaging using contrast-enhanced magneto-motive ultrasound for the early detection of colorectal cancer, a pilot clinical trial to establish effectiveness of contrast enhanced ultrasound to detect sentinel lymph nodes in rectal cancer, development of physiological flow phantoms to investigate factors capable of influencing ultrasound and microbubble mediated drug delivery, delivery of siRNA using ultrasound and microbubbles to treat hypertension in a mouse model and investigation of low frequency ultrasound to stimulate bone repair. I also have expertise in non-linear acoustics, contrast imaging, microbubbles, medical device design and fabrication, therapeutic ultrasound and elastography.

Currently available PhD studentships:

I am always keen to hear from prospective PhD students and post doctoral researchers with complimentary research interests, please get in touch to discuss.
