I started my career at the Centre for Applied Microbiology and Research (CAMR) at Porton Down as a graduate research scientist working in the fields of immunology and then protein biochemistry (bacterial toxins). I decided to pursue the field of protein biochemistry and undertook a PhD in Protein biophysics at the University of Southampton. Following on from my PhD studies, I took a post-doctoral position with Professor Alan WIlliams at the Wales Heart Research Institute (WHRI) at Cardiff University, where I was employed by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to study the structure-function relationship of a cardiac ion channel and its implication in heart disease. Throught my 10 years at the WHRI, I built a solid understanding of laboratory based research specialising in ion channel biophysics (biochemical, molecular biological and electrophysiological).

I have now turned to utilising the transferable research skills I acquired through my laboratory based research into my current role as a clinical trial manager. I started working with Professor Nick Francis on a study led by Southampton University. This was an observational study with a nested double blind trial which investigated the need for antibiotics in mild or moderate chest infections in children (ARTIC PC).

I am now working as a trial manager in the infections group in the Centre for Trials Research (CTR).
