My primary research interest is the process of cell division and the cellular consequences should this occur incorrectly i.e. cancer. My PhD focused on the identification of cell division defects and the role they play in whole genome doubling, in oesophageal adenocarcinoma and its precursor lesion Barrett’s oesophagus. Prior to this my research was focused on the identification of novel mitotic microtubule associated proteins in the early Drosophila embryo.
Having just completed my PhD, I have now taken the post as research technician in the Wakefield lab, returning to work with the Drosophila early embryo.
