Personal profile

Research Interests

In 2010 I completed my degree in Human Biology at the University of Huddersfield and began my PhD at Aston focusing on medicines research. Here, formulation of oral liquid antihypertensives formed the initial stages of my project; here an understanding of drug action on a molecular level in a physiological setting was essential. In vitro and In vivo characterisation of developed formulations utilising cell and rodent based models paved the way for subsequent genomic investigations into intestinal transporter expression profiling using microarray technology and bioinformatics. Following my PhD I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Aston on a project focused on in vitro assessment of taste and was carried out in collaboration with market leading pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca, GSK, Pfizer and Bristol Myers Squib as well as UCL. During this time I also elevated my teaching profile and arrived at Aston University as a Lecturer in Pharmacy in 2015. Since my lectureship appointment I have been heavily involved with teaching on the MPharm degree programme and I am pursuing my own line of research in formulation design and development. I have recently been awarded funding internally for a PhD studentship investigating the application of 3D printing technology in tablet production which commenced in January 2018. More recent research tracks have seen innovation in the application of nanoparticle formulations to better target administration in hospital settings.

Teaching Activity

MPharm Programme Director

I lecture accross all years of the MPharm covering areas of Cell Biology, Microbiology, Immunology, Formulation Science, Vaccines, Biopharmaceutics and Statistics.

I also lecture on the OSPAP programme, Postgraduate masters programmes and deliver a number of annual invited guest lectures at other universities accross the midlands.
