My Bio

I am delighted to be joining the Warwick IFP this year to be module convenor of both Chemistry and Biology. Previously I have taught Chemistry and Biology at several leading independent schools in the area. Before my teaching career, I was engaged in Medical Research at Warwick University in the areas of DNA Replication and Cellular Signalling. I have also had several positions at the Universities of Cambridge and Birmingham and within scientific industry.

Outside of teaching, I sing soprano in the Chapelfields Community Choir and the Coventry Cathedral Chamber Choir.
