Personal profile

Research Interests

At present I am employed as a teaching associate in the Centre for Biomedical Science (Education) in QUB, however, I have ongoing research interests in normal and pathological control of retinal blood flow and ion channel function in retinal arteriolar smooth muscle. In collaboration with Prof Peter Flatt of Ulster University I am helping to characterise the actions of novel therapeutic tools for the control of hyperglycaemia in diabetic.
