Personal profile

Research Interests

Currently working for CMAC, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, upon completion of PhD. Previous experiences include Visiting Researcher at University of Houston, TX, USA (2016), dedicated to the nucleation of pharmaceutical molecules, and Research Assistant at University of the West of Scotland (2012-2014) working on organic synthesis. Specialise in advanced analytical tools for characterisation of particle properties and the fundamental mechanisms of nucleation and growth of pharmaceutical crystals including, but not limited to techniques such as atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, Raman and NMR spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, light scattering, crystallographic analysis and elements of molecular modelling. Experience in preparing and delivering lectures and laboratory classes for MSc students in Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing at University of Strathclyde (since 2017).  Author of 10+ publications and 10+ poster and oral presentations at national and international meetings. Achieved multiple awards including three best poster prizes, two travel awards, and an overall winner at Images of Research University of Strathclyde (2017). Associate Member of Royal Society of Chemistry and a member of Royal Microscopical Society and British Society for Crystal Growth. Actively collaborates internally and internationally on multidisciplinary projects with academic (University of Houston, US, University College London, UK) and industry partners (Elly Lilly, GSK, AZ).
