I joined De Montfort University in 2017 as Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Science with a focus on reproductive sciences. Before this I worked in science and healthcare regulation at the Health and Safety Executive (regulatory toxicology), Public Health England (cervical screening) and the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority working extensively on the regulation of mitochondrial donation and gene editing.
I am Programme Leader for the BSc Biomedical Science Course, Deputy Chair of the Clinical Sciences Programme Management Board, and Faculty Head of Research Ethics.
Centre for Reproduction Research
My research background is in reproductive toxicology and endocrine disruption, with expertise in cell and molecular biology/toxicology. I currently have interests in the regulation of science and healthcare, and biomedical ethics with a particular focus on reproductive technologies.
I am Programme Leader for the IBMS accredited BSc Biomedical Science programme. I lead BIOM1010 Basic Anatomy and Physiology, a large year one module on both the Biomedical and Medical Science programmes. My areas of teaching are primarily: anatomy and physiology, connective tissues, reproductive sciences, endocrinology, histology and histopathology, healthcare science quality, regulation and ethics. I supervise undergraduate and postgraduate research projects with a focus on meta analysis.
