I am an NIHR academic clinical lecturer undertaking post-doctoral research while completing my specialist clinical training in clinical oncology. My research interest is the role of DNA repair in radiotherapy response in brain tumours and if these repair pathways can be influenced to improve radiotherapy treatment outcomes. I am currently exploring the microhomology end-joining DNA double strand break repair pathway in glioblastoma and its role in tumour radiosensitivity.
