After obtaining a degree in Environmental Biology at Plymouth University, I worked as a research assistant within the Ecotoxicology Research & Innovation Centre (ERIC), Plymouth University, where I developed my use of widefield microscopy, while imaging zebrafish. Subsequently, I undertook my PhD research at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, where I studied the fate and toxicity of silver nanomaterials (AgNM). I then worked as a research fellow at Exeter University, where I investigated the interaction and transfer of nanoplastics within a simple food web. During this project I extensively applied fluorescence and confocal imaging, and image quantitation and processing techniques. Since February 2020 I have been supporting the light microscopy users, within the Bioimaging center.
