Research interests

My research interests lie within the field of proteomics, using cutting edge mass spectrometry to identify protein biomarkers of disease progression and treatment as well as developing qualitative and quantitative methods that enable the identification of protein biomarkers that are present within samples in low abundance.  My technical expertise includes the preparation and mass spectrometry analysis of complex samples such serum, tumour tissue and skin as well as 3-D skin models, cell lines, interstitial fluid and chemically modified model proteins.
