Overview

I am currently the Organisational & Staff Development Officer for Research at Cardiff University, and Programme Manager for the 'Welsh Crucible' programme of personal, professional and leadership development for future research leaders in Wales.

Previously, I have worked as a Research Associate in the Cardiff CLL Research Group and in the Cardiff-China Medical Research Collaborative (CCMRC), both part of the Division of Cancer & Genetics at Cardiff University School of Medicine.

My research has most recently focused on the metastasis of prostate cancer to bone, looking specifically at the factors involved in the osteoblastic phenotype exhibited by prostate cancer, in addition to the interactions between prostate cancer cells and the permissive bone microenvironment that allow secondary tumours to develop and progress at these sites. My research was funded by Cancer Research Wales.
