DPhil Clinical Research Fellow
I am a 1st year DPhil research fellow on the Wellcome Trust PhD Training Fellowship for Clinicians Programme. This 3-year fellowship is designed to allow clinical academics in medicine, veterinary medicine and clinical psychology to receive the relevant research training to pursue a successful academic career in their chosen field.
For the first 2 years of my DPhil, I am based at the University of Oxford in the the Nuffield Department for Women's and Reproductive Health in the Williams' group, and for my 3rd year at the Royal Veterinary College, London, in the de Mestre group.
My research focuses on age-related changes in oocyte quality and its implications on Early Pregnancy Loss, using a horse model.
I qualified as a veterinary surgeon at the University of Bristol before undertaking an MSc in Reproductive and Developmental Biology at Imperial College. I worked for 2 years as a vet in both small animal and equine practice, with a key interest in equine stud medicine.
