Personal profile

Personal Statement

I completed my PhD developing anticancer silk nanomedicines in 2019 under the supervision of Dr Philipp Seib and Dr Blair Johnston. I was subsequently awarded the EPSRC Doctoral Prize to continue my research under the mentorship of Professor Alastair Florence. Now hosted by the EPSRC CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub, the central aim of my research is to tune silk nanomedicine manufacturing to enhance healthcare performance.
