    Personal profile


    I am an experienced integrative physiologist with an interest and track record in human physiology and metabolism. I have conducted in vivo and in vitro research investigating the pathogenesis of insulin resistance in humans, cell lines and primary cells using advanced culture methods. To progress my research career, I have obtained competitive funding to work with leading international research groups to advance my research interests and capabilities to investigate obesity and metabolic disease. 



    Research Interests

    My interest in metabolic disease has given me the opportunity to work with a variety of cell and tissue types. I have conducted experiments using hepatocytes and I have developed an interest in the metabolic crosstalk between the liver and skeletal muscle.
