I am a Stipendiary Lecturer in Medicine at Somerville and a British Heart Foundation Immediate Postdoctoral Basic Science Research Fellow at the Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics, working in Prof Damian Tyler’s group.

My research focuses on the toxic side-effects of the chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin on the heart. Specifically, I am using hyperpolarized MRI to study metabolic fluxes in a model of doxorubicin-induced heart failure. I also closely collaborate with Prof Jules Griffin and Prof Mike Murphy, both from the University of Cambridge, to assess metabolomic and redox effects of doxorubicin on the heart, respectively.
