DPhil Student


Before coming to Oxford, I graduated with a BSc in Biochemistry from Imperial College London. My DPhil research focuses on cell cycle progression, a process essential for the proliferation that underpins development and tissue homeostasis. However, cancer cells hijack mechanisms to boost cell cycle progression, promoting their uncontrolled proliferation. I am interested in studying these mechanisms in more detail, to better understand how healthy cells become cancerous, and to enable the development of new cancer therapies.
