Personal profile


I graduated with a BSc Honours degree in Physiology and a postgraduate MSc degree in Immunology from Kings College London. I obtained my PhD from the University of Nottingham. Since then my postdoctoral research work has revolved around investigating the molecular pathogenesis of diseases in which inflammation and angiogenesis are core components. A significant proportion of my research has been on enhancing understanding of arthritis pain and improving its treatment. I am a member of the Arthritis and Regenerative Medicine team within the Aberdeen Centre for Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Health (ACAMH). 

Research Overview:

I am interested in investigating the interactions between the arthritic joint and the peripheral and central processing of painful inputs originating from the joint. My current research revolves around understanding the roles of stem cells in the pathophysiology of joint homeostasis, remodelling and repair, with a particular focus on how stem cells interact with nerves in the joint to control arthritic pain.
