Biography

I was appointed as Lecturer in Molecular Cell Biology at the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Cardiff University in 2001, and was promoted to senior Lecturer in 2007 then to Reader in Membrane Traffic and Drug Delivery in 2011. Previously I gained my PhD in protein biochemistry and crystallography at Birkbeck College, University of London, and undertook postdoctoral positions investigating membrane traffic on the endocytic pathway at the Physiological Laboratory, University of Liverpool and Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard University, USA.

In 2000 I was awarded a European Molecular Biology Organization fellowship to work at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg Germany and continued at the EMBL and awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Scholarship.

I have a keen interest in the public understanding of science and in 2001 was awarded a Diploma in Journalism from the University of Wales Bangor.
