Personal profile

Personal Statement

I build bridges.

But I am not an engineer!

I manage the Knowledge Exchange for Strathclyde’s Health & Care Futures. I am an honorary Research & Development Consultant with NHS Lanarkshire.


Having studied Physics together with the somewhat unlikely subjects of Neuroscience, Botany and Chemistry I build bridges between different disciplines. With a background in electrophysiology, microscopy and time resolved fluorescence, an excellent knowledge in cell biology and skills in quantum Physics, Biochemistry and molecular Biology I work as an Enabler of Science. I am not an expert. I am not a specialist. I deliberately developed and nurture a broad knowledge base and a wide skills set to always explore new fields and opportunities of research and development.

Working as an Application Scientist in Biomedical Science & Knowledge Exchange I develop and manage projects between University-based research, the NHS and commercial or public partners. I bring experience in working with companies ranging from small University spin-offs to multinational enterprise and within two-partner projects to large consortia involving several Universities and companies. I am experienced in working with funding bodies: the UK and European Research Councils, Innovate UK and private funders and charities.

Besides my research and knowledge exchange, I teach with a passion. Teaching is a privilege meeting bright people and guiding them a step along their way to develop their full potential and opportunities. A special interest of mine is bespoke teaching and training to support people’s careers and ambitions. And not least of all … teaching is fun!
