About me

As the Head of High Content Screening at King's College London, I lead a dedicated cell phenotyping group within the Centre for Gene Therapy & Regenerative Medicine. I have over 15 years of experience in the stem cell field, I have established expertise in biology, regenerative medicine, disease modeling using stem cells, animal-free research and applications, and cryopreservation of sensitive samples and tissues for cell therapy applications.

I also contribute to the education and training of the next generation of stem cell researchers by delivering workshops and lectures on topics related to stem cell technology and perinatal tissues for cell therapies at the University of Nottingham.   

Topics and areas that matter to me are within the biology and regenerative medicine sector, health, nutrition and fitness/exercise and access for people from disadvantaged backgrounds. I am also very conscious of disabilities and anything that can alter someone's life (Diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease) and I am trying to help/assist or improve life with my work/research and by volunteering my time. 

 

What am I looking for

I am interested in dedicating some of my free time to a worthy charity/trust and I am looking for opportunities to volunteer primarily in the healthcare, science, nutrition, and disability areas in the UK. 

I have been taking part as a fundraiser for charities, with the biggest fundraising event happening for Diabetes UK in 2022 with over £2,400 raised. I am very passionate, aware, and considerate about the above and how everything is affecting the population today. I rather see positive changes in the lives of people backed up by scientific evidence.
