I completed my undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at the University of Nottingham, and went on to undertake doctoral studies on spinal mechanisms of pain in Victoria Chapman's lab utilising behavioural, electrophysiological, and molecular biological approaches. I subsequently spent 5 years in Budapest, Hungary, conducting post-doctoral research on the anatomy of the spinal endocannabinoid system in Istvan Katona's lab at the Institute of Experimental Medicine. During this time I acquired expertise in immunohistochemical techniques including STORM super-resolution imaging. I have now returned to Professor Chapman's lab to combine anatomical and physiological techniques to reveal insights into spinal mechanisms of pain.

Expertise Summary

In vivo rodent pain models (inflammatory, osteoarthritis), in vivo spinal electrophysiology, ELISAs, Western blotting and enzyme activity assays, immunohistochemistry (DAB, fluorescence, electron microscopy) & STORM super-resolution imaging.
