  • Biography

    I was appointed as Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Medical Oncology in 2014. Prior to this I undertook specialist medical oncology training at the Beatson Oncology Centre in Glasgow and the Northern Centre for Cancer Care, Newcastle. During this time I was awarded a Cancer Research UK PhD fellowship which I completed in 2010.

    As a clinical academic, my time is divided between research and clinical practice. I am involved in the development and running of early phase clinical trials and the management of patients on the Sir Bobby Robson Research unit at the Freeman Hospital. My research interests are targeting DNA repair pathways as treatments for cancer and the gynaecological malignancies.

    I am the principal investigator on several national and international clinical trials in ovarian cancer. I am also an associate member of the National Cancer Research Institute Ovarian sub-group committee. I am a lecturer at Newcastle University on Undergraduate and Masters courses.
