Clinical Research Fellow
My research focuses on the development and implementation of digital pathology techniques to profile immune cell infiltrates in cancer. More specifically, I am interested in how different immune cell subsets are spatially arranged in relation to hypoxic regions within human solid tumours and whether the tumour microenvironment can be manipulated in order to encourage infiltration of anti-tumour effector immune cells.
I graduated from the University of Edinburgh Medical School in 2009 and, thereafter, have worked in Oxford. I am currently studying for a DPhil in Clinical Medicine, having taken time out from post-graduate training in Histopathology.
