Personal profile

Research interests

My research focus is on understanding the role of fibroblast heterogeneity in tissue morphogenesis and repair.  Fibroblasts are a specialised cell type that synthesises the structural scaffold of most organs called Extra-Cellular Matrix (ECM).  My lab uses skin as a model to provide for an experimental platform to study how these specialised cells influence the construction and repair of an organ.  The basic discoveries from my lab have broad implications on diseases such as scarring, fibrosis, and cancer.


Biographical details

I was awarded my undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.  My PhD was obtained at the University of Iowa under the supervision of Professor John F. Engelhardt.  I carried out my postdoctoral research at Cambridge University and King’s College London.  I am currently a King's College London / London Law Trust Medal Fellow at the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine.
