Personal profile

Personal Statement

After graduating from the University of Liverpool with a Bachelor Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, I chose to pursue an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Medical Devices under the supervision of Professor John McCarron and Dr Mairi Sandison. My research interests lie in the area of cell signal processing. Mainly focussing on understanding the mechanisms behind endothelial cell signal processing in blood vessels. This has been applied not only to healthy vessels, but also on diabetic and hypertensive models also as a part of a BHF-funded project, working within a strong interdisciplinary team of scientists to achieve goals and improve the understanding of these prevalent diseases.
