Research Profile

My research focusses on creating a comprehensive high fidelity next generation microphysiological system (MPS). This primarily involves characterising and optimising a multiplex superfusion system that generates a physiological microenvironment for in vitro and ex vivo experimentation. Such a MPS can be deployed to vastly facilitate improving the predictive value of preclinical biomedical research and the uncovering of novel pathophysiological pathways.

I also have a background in microbiology and immunology, where I investigated the effect coinfection with influenza virus have on streptococcal colonisation and transmission.
