Research Summary

I am currently in a post-doc role in the NIHR Core Metabolomics and Lipidomics Laboratory Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science as an analytical chemist. My role involves exclusively mass spectrometry based detection of small molecules with several hybridised techniques, such as direct infusion with an Advion TriVersa NanoMate® system, liquid chromatography and gas chromatography separation. I am heavily involved with method development, sample analysis, data processing and results interpretation, additionally I am also involved in publishing of these data. My particular research interests are in mass spectrometry with chromatographic separation for the detection and quantification of analytes in the areas of metabolomics and lipidomics. These fields are vast and offer a huge range of complications and challenges for their analytes detection.
