I undertook my Masters in Theoretical Physics at the University of Manchester in 2008. This was followed by a Ph.D. in Biological Physics from 2009-2012, which was published as part of the Springer Thesis Series.
I was awarded a two-year E.P.S.R.C. Doctoral Prize Fellowship following my Ph.D. and also undertook a short-term UMIP project, focusing on automated ECG analysis.
This was followed by an M.R.C Strategic Skills Fellowship covering a three-year period from 2015-2018.
In June 2016, I joined the Cardiovascular Research Group at the University of Leeds as a University Academic Fellow. I am currently an Associate Professor in Systems Physiology.
My research involves constructing computational models of the heart to provide mechanistic insight into cardiac arrhythmias.
I also place high importance on outreach activities and am currently enrolled in the STEM Ambassador Scheme. I have taken part in exhibits at Manchester Science Festival and The Heart Experience (funded by BHF) . If you work with children, in particular A-level students, and would like a talk on careers in science or the link between biology and physics, please feel free to contact me.
