Currently serving as a Research Fellow at INL, I am an expert in cell culture and in vitro cell-based models. At INL, I am developing a novel in vitro model of intestinal inflammation.

M.Sc in Biomedical Engineering with a focus on Clinical Engineering and PhD in Biomedical Sciences, I am a scientist with 6+ years of experience in research. My PhD focused on developing an innovative 3D in vitro intestinal model to test the permeability of compounds at the pre-clinical stage of drug development.

Concurrently co-leading a career hub team within a non-profit organization focused on enhancing scientists' career prospects.
