I first became aware of microvesicles whilst completing my undergraduate 3rd year research project, where I studied platelet-derived microvesicles.

Currently I am researching the modulation of leukocyte microvesicles in acute ischaemic stroke. Whilst doing this I have become particularly interested in developing microvesicle analysis. This has led me to developing collaborations outside of the faculty and acquiring knowledge in the physics and engineering as well as the biology surrounding the topic. I have been fortunate enough to work with industry to apply this knowledge to the development of equipment for our lab. This in turn has allowed our research group to analyse microvesicles to a much higher resolution than many groups are currently capable of.
