I am a geneticist with experience of working with a range of model systems including cell culture, bacteria and fungi including Escherichia coli, the food poisoning organism Clostridium perfringens, the model eukaryotes Aspergillus nidulans, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosacchharomyces pombe, mouse models and human muscle biopsy material.
I am particularly interested in interdisciplinary studies and have had collaborations around the University. Perhaps the most unusual being with Deryn Rees-Jones (English Department).
I am a SFHEA and a particular interest in developing high quality learning in teaching. I have been involved in developing many innovative approaches to learning and assessment, especially in the School of Life Sciences. I also developed and lead an innovative, collaborative, MRes in Musculoskeletal Ageing and a MOOC.
