University of Bristol
Research Fellow
Bristol, UK
As a research scientist, I study how cells sense and respond to hormone signals in their environment using high content imaging and mathematical modelling. Currently, I am investigating the effect of high blood pressure and inflammation on the kidney, and developing optogenetics tools to understand how podocytes sense insulin pulses. Furthermore, I'm an artist and writer interested in exploring ways that art can be used to talk about science and medicine.
