Personal profile

Teaching

In my role as a Teaching Associate within the Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education (CBMSE) at QUB, my undergraduate teaching is focused in the areas of microanatomy, human structure and function and biochemistry. 

As a consequence of my extensive experience in laboratory-based academic research, I have a keen interest in aligning current teaching strategies with emerging research and technologies. This interest extends beyond laboratory science and, through my interactions with the QUB Science Shop, I now embed community engaged research and learning into my personal teaching portfolio. 

Research Interests

My post-doctoral research centred on transdermal delivery of drugs and vaccines using novel microarray patch (MAP) technologies and peptides of the innate immune response system. My most recent research project, carried out in collaboration with the international non-profit organisation, PATH, involved the development and characterisation of dissolving MAPs for the delivery of an anti-HIV medication. In addition to this experimental research, I supervised the work of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the laboratory, while contributing to grant acquisition and administration.  

Over and above these research activities, my commitment to public engagement with science continues to be evidenced by my strong national standing in this area. I spear-headed the School of Pharmacy’s contribution to a School Universities Partnership Initiative (SUPI), funded by UKRI (formerly RCUK) from 2013-2019, which endeavoured to take scientific research into the laboratories and classrooms of over 270 school pupils in Northern Ireland, making science more tangible and accessible, aiming to encourage them to consider pursuing science subjects at third level.
