Research interests

Current Research

Tumour metastasis is the leading cause of cancer-related death, and is associated epigenetic reprogramming. The aim of my current project is to develop our understanding of the mechanisms which underly these epigenetic changes, using zebrafish models of colorectal cancer.

PhD Research

I have recently completed a PhD at the University of the West of England (UWE) studying the role of specific microorganisms in the progression of colorectal cancer. This project focussed on comparing the response of benign and malignant tumour cells to infection with bacteria such as F. nucleatum, which inluded studying tumour cell metabolism, migration and invasion.
