I am an experimental physicist with a strong interest in translating advanced optical techniques into new medical devices.
After completing an EngD in Photonics in 2013, I spent a few years working in industry, both in technical consulting and in a biotech start-up. During this time I completed a PGDip in Business Administration, worked hands-on with commercial prototyping and undertook technical and market analyses in the medical device sector.
I returned to academia as a Research Associate in the Engineering Department in July 2016 to work on the development of a holographic capsule endoscope to detect oesophageal cancer. I collaborate with Dr. Sarah Bohndiek and the VISIONLab, Dr. George Gordon and Prof. Tim Wilkinson. I am passionate about understanding and realising the medical potential of this new technique. My research is part of the Early Detection Programme at the CRUK Cambridge Centre which enables collaboration with clinicians and medical researchers. I strongly value this interdisciplinary environment as it enables me to keep my perspective broad and consider the needs of clinicians at this early stage of development.
Outside of research, I love to sing, hike and practice yoga, and am enjoying learning to use the 3D printers and other tools at the Cambridge Makespace.
