I'm a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham where I research the role of viruses in cancer. My particular project looks into how a common virus called Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) helps infected cells to cheat death and therefore contributes to the survival of cells in EBV-positive cancers. I am also an ambassador for the Ask For Evidence campaign run by Sense About Science which aims to put scientific evidence in the hands of the public, where it belongs!

Hi! I'm a science communicator with a background in viruses & cancer research. I've given talks around the UK and Europe on topics from genetics to ethics with quite a lot of virology, cancer biology and how the public can use science and evidence in between! I give public talks, debates, Q&As and deliver bespoke training for scientists, researchers, medics and students. I also include hands-on activities as much as possible.
