I received my PhD in Nutritional Metabolomics from the University of Reading (UK) in 2017. My PhD aimed at examining the impact plant bioactives have on cancer metabolism and evaluating their potential use as adjuvant treatments during radiotherapy. My educational background also includes an MSc in Nutrition and Health from Wageningen University (NL) and a BSc in Biology from the University of Leeds (UK).

Upon completion of my PhD I moved to Imperial College London for post-doctoral training. My key area of research is the application of metabolic profiling (NMR & MS) and bioinformatics in the field of global health. This systems approach is applied in large-scale population based studies as well as animal models recapitulating important features of enteric dysfunction. The ultimate goal is to facilitate the development of diagnostic tools of compromised growth and enteric infections in early-life, as well as inform interventions for the management of undernutrition and its adverse consequences in children from developing countries.
