I am a specialist registrar and NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Ear, Nose and Throat surgery in the North East.

I graduated from Cardiff University in 2012 with degrees in Public Health and Medicine during which time I also co-founded Cardiff University Research Society (CUReS).

My primary research interests lie in malignant head and neck disease. My current research focuses on cellular signaling in oropharyngeal cancers and I am particularly interested in the role of autophagy in the development and progression this disease. My aim is to learn how to manipulate autophagy to improve treatment responses in these cancers.

Academic Interest:  My main research interest is the role the cell ˜self-eating™ process autophagy plays in the development and progression of oropharyngeal (throat) cancers and how this process can be manipulated for therapeutic benefit.
