Biography

I graduated in 2018 from the University of Exeter with first-class honours in MSci Natural Sciences. Within my degree, I enjoyed studying the physics that underpins biological and medical processes and tailored my modules choices to reflect this. Undertaking my master’s project in imaging Alzheimer’s disease tissue using spectroscopic techniques showed me how improving diagnostics can have a positive impact on patients’ lives.

The CDT programme will allow me to further improve my medical imaging knowledge and continue using interdisciplinary approaches to help improve diagnostic tools, whilst providing me with a strong foundation to carry out scientific research.
