About me

I completed my PhD in immunology at the University of Edinburgh (2006) before moving fields to work in transcriptomics and human physiology at Heriot-Watt University (2007). From there I moved to a post doctoral position in the Medical School of the University of Edinburgh (2009) where I continued research into human muscle pathology as well as developmental biology. I returned to Immunology with a post doctoral position at the Roslin Institute (2011) before taking up my current post at the University of Stirling.
