My interest is in the physical structure of a tissue that influences the behaviour of the cells who reside in it. I have developed a method to determine tissue structure at the nanometre scale. Now we are studying the structure of early and advanced tumours, looking for new strategies to steer structural influence towards disease resolution.

During my PhD I studied the tumour microenvironment and its heterogeneity in spontaneous canine soft tissue sarcomas using different molecular markers. Now my research is focused on the extracellular matrix (ECM) and how it affects metastasis.
The past few years I have worked with exercise oncology in a research environment that combined mechanistic preclinical studies with clinical training interventions studies in cancer patients. My current research focuses on elucidating whether exercise modulates ECM components in the tumor microenvironment to foster anti-cancer conditions and limit metastatic development.
I want to explore what happens within stromal tissue during metastasis, in particular how the tumour microenvironment promotes cancer progression. My PhD focuses on changes in cell populations during metastatic disease and how stromal cells contribute to changes in the ECM. I will apply single cell RNA sequencing to explore this area.
I am driven by the desire to understand and prevent the molecular mechanisms of metastasis in pancreatic cancer. My time here will be spend focusing on uncovering the role of neutrophils in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, and elucidating critical immune cells in tumor progression and metastasis.
