Research Fellow, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
In 2000 I received my BSc degree in Biotechnology and Environmental sciences and a year later I started to work as laboratory technician at Nottingham University. I was a lab technician for five years and gained significant experience and knowledge in a wide range of molecular biology techniques thanks to the interesting projects that I worked on. In 2010, I completed my doctorate in the field of developmental origins of adult health and disease at the School of Clinical Sciences at Nottingham University. My PhD research is focused on the alterations produced by an unfavourable fetal-maternal environment during pregnancy and the distinct functional adaptations of renal and adipose tissues observed in juvenile obese offspring, using a combination of vivo, ex vivo and molecular biology data. In May of this year I joined the Vet School as a postdoctoral research fellow and I am studying the effects of fetal-maternal environmentand its affects on muscle development. My main research contributions have, in particular, addressed changes in developmental genes and their effects on reno-vascular, adipose tissue and skeletal muscle physiology. Out of work I enjoy many outdoor activities including football, cycling and running.
