Research Interests


The overarching theme of my research is to investigate nanoparticles in human health

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis

XRF is technique I specialise in, and often use to measures both the location and concentration of nanoparticles in tissue, which is very important when trying to understand their affects.


Nanoparticles are the same size as viruses or very large proteins, and so can interact with human cells on a molecular level. What's exciting is we can design nanoparticles for treatment or diagnosis of disease.

Imaging and Analysis

"Seeing" nanoparticles is hard because they are so small. Part of my research involves using super resolution microscopes to image how nanoparticles affect human cells and tissue.
