Projects per year
I currently teach on both the Biomedical Sciences and MPharm degree programs. I am class co-ordinator for MP323 "Management of Cardiovascular Conditions". I host Masters students in the lab - MSc, MSci and MRes projects, in addition to supervising/co-supervising 2 PhD students and 2 EngD students.
I am a Chancellors Research Fellow, examining the role of mitochondria in neurodegeneration and age-associated decline of the cerebrovasculature.
My primary research interest is in mitochondria, with a particular focus on the involvement of these small organelles with calcium signalling processes and the changes associated with age and diseases. I use high-speed and timelapse fluorescence imaging to visualise and modulate mitochondria and calcium signals within live cells and tissue.
