    Personal profile



    After graduating in Biological Sciences in 1993 from Warwick University I was employed at a company in Coventry involved in the chemical and biological analysis of contamination soil and water. I progressed to lab manager for a team of 15 people, but in 1999 decided I wanted to focus back more on biology and research and took up a PhD at Coventry University. My PhD project involved developing a biosensor based on bilayer lipid membrane structure of biological membranes. After my PhD I worked on several postdoc projects at Coventry University. The first one was an EU funded project (FP6) where we worked with various international partners to develop a novel diagnostic system for malaria. I then worked on a project for Tarmac Ltd investigating the pollutant retention properties of some of their permeable pavement products. Then most recently, I worked as a microbiologist on another EU funded project (FP7). The aim here was to develop a sonochemical industrial process for the production of antimicrobial fabrics. I am currently a lecturer in biomedical sciences within faculty of health and life sciences.


    Area of Expertise:


    Antibacterial efficacy testing, Malaria, Ultrasound

    Research Interests

    Nanoparticles; Antimicrobial agents; Heavy metal pollution; Malaria biology and diagnosis; Ultrasonic wastewater treatment; Biosensors and bilayer lipid membranes; Sustainable drainage/porous pavement systems; Environmental analysis - techniques in analytical chemistry

    Vision Statement

    My research interests primarily relate to applications of biological sciences to healthcare. I am currently engaged in research in to new antimicrobial agents. This is in response to the healthcare threats posed by antibiotic resistant bacteria and hospital acquired infections.
