I graduated with a BSc in Biomedical Sciences in 2018. During my degree, I also did a summer internship at the Institute of Cancer Therapeutics in Bradford, where I gained hands-on experience with bioinformatic tools and main proteomic techniques. In 2019, I did my MPhil on Developmental Biology at the University of Cambridge, where I utilised 3D aggregates of mouse embryonic stem cells, termed gastruloids, as an experimental model to explore the link between metabolism and early mammalian development. Currently, I undertake my PhD on the Gates Cambridge Scholarship Programme. My research interest lies in understanding the role of morphogens in cell fate specification and patterning in early human development.
