I provide administrative support for the Psychological Medicine Research Group, headed by Professor Michael Sharpe. The work of the team seeks to improve treatments by integrating psychiatry into medical care.
I studied Biochemistry at Manchester University, including spending a year in industry. I then moved to Imperial College, London, where my Ph.D. focused on the development of novel cancer therapeutics using recombinant antibody fragments.
Since completing my doctorate, my career has focused on the communication of scientific ideas – in both a PR agency setting and in the classroom as a secondary science teacher.
