BRS Committee member

I'm a developmental biologist who wants to know how tissues mineralise. I use bones and scales to track mineralisation on the subcellular scale using cool imaging techniques along the way!

I received my PhD from The University of Manchester in 2013, researching ciliopathies and heart defects from a mouse mutagenesis screen. Having previously worked on the chicken ciliopathy mutant Talpid3 at The Roslin Institute, I joined The CRUK Beatson Institute to develop techniques to understand the role of ciliopathy genes in immune cells before returning to Roslin in 2019 to apply my expertise in imaging protein localisation to better understand mineralisation in bone. In 2022 I was awarded a BBSRC Discovery Fellowship to develop fish models for mineralisation in bone and scales.
