I joined the University of Sunderland in 2017. My main research interests are in the field of cancer epigenetics, especially in relation to environmental exposures and in the development and progression of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.
I lecture on topics related to genetics, epigenetics and cancer, mainly for BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science.
Human Genetics and Genomics
Molecular and Cellular Biology
Clinical and Professional Practice
Clinical and Professional Practice for Healthcare Science
Molecular and Cellular Analysis
Haematology and Transfusion Science
Biosciences Literature Review
Bioscience Research Investigation
