Biography

I completed my MSci in Biochemistry with Industrial Placement at the University of Aberdeen in 2019. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in Precision Medicine at the University of Glasgow under the supervision of Professor Joanne Edwards and expect to graduate in 2024.

I work as the Resources and Outreach Manager for the INCISE project which aims to transform bowel cancer screening in the UK by developing a predictive tool for identifying patients with pre-cancerous bowel growths, called polyps, who are at risk of developing further polyps.

Additionally, I am involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching within the School of Cancer Sciences and the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing.

Research interests

My research interests lie in the field of Precision Medicine, with a particular focus on transforming bowel cancer screening methodologies. As the Resources and Outreach Manager for the INCISE project, I collaborate closely with the Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) team, which includes patient advocates, charity representatives, clinicians and researchers. Our primary objective within the PPI framework is to prioritise patient interests throughout the development of our screening tool, ensuring its efficacy and relevance in clinical practice.
