I completed my Undergraduate Pharmacology degree at the University of Aberdeen in 2015, graduating first in my class. I then undertook my PhD training at Queen's University Belfast, which focused on the role of Itch E3 ligase in receptor signalling and endocytosis.
I have been a member of the British Pharmacological Society since my undergraduate degree. I was the Society's first Trustee (Early Career) on Council from 2016 - 2018, and I am the current Chair for the Early Career Advisory Group within the Society. I have worked closely with the Society during this time on their Equality, Diversity & Inclusion policy, as well as improving Early Career representation within the Society.
