I am a first year DPhil student at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) and I am jointly supervised by Professor Ahmed Ahmed and Professor Ian Mills. My research interest lies in tumour metabolism, and I am currently researching the mechanisms by which salt-inducible kinase 2 (SIK2) supports ovarian cancer cell survival and metastatic dissemination under metabolic stress conditions such as in ascitic fluid. My DPhil is funded by the Oxford Elizabeth Murphy Scholarship.
I graduated from Imperial College London in 2016 with a BSc in Biomedical Science. Prior to my DPhil, I worked as a Research Assistant at Yale University, where I studied the regulation of Twist1 by heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90).
