I am a Research Fellow at Edinburgh Napier University. The current project I work on is an extensive, collaborative research aiming to determine the long-term consequences of early life steroid signalling perturbations and their impact on postnatal health, led by prof. Mick Rae.
In 2011 I graduated with a first-class degree in Biomedical Science from Edinburgh Napier University and in 2012 I was awarded MSc by Research with Distinction in Reproductive Sciences at The University of Edinburgh. In 2017 I completed my PhD training at the Centre for Reproductive Health in The Queen's Medical Research Institute at The University of Edinburgh. My thesis title: Fetal programming of adult disease: Causes and consequences of metabolic dysregulation in an ovine model of PCOS.
During my academic years, I have spent time studying various aspects of reproductive biology, endocrinology, metabolism and the effects of prenatal programming of adult disease. In 2016, I was awarded Young Investigator Award by the European Society of Endocrinology. My life ambition is to combine my passion for health, enthusiasm for research and a strong interest in reproductive biology, metabolism and endocrinology to make a direct impact on improving people's lives.
