Research themes

Regenerative Medicine/Healthcare Technologies

Research interests

My research interests are multidisciplinary; utilising bioengineering, spectrometry and spectroscopy to advance healthcare technologies and understanding. Primary focuses are to move analytical technology and practices to the non-invasive or non-destructive routes.

Scope of interests: Mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS, GC-MS), vibrational spectroscopy (Mid-Infrared FTIR, Synchrotron-FTIR, Raman) preclinical models, supporting technologies, tissue engineering, lungs/Respiratory, ear/nose/throat, stem cell biology, biomarkers, volatile organic compounds, imaging, In vitro modelling, clinical translation, breath analysis, body fluid profiling, cell headspace (the exometabolome).

Current lab group activity

The use of Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) and Vibrational Spectroscopy to profile models of irritable bowel syndromes (IBS), study age related hearing loss (improving basic scientific knowledge, diagnostics and interventions) and investigate the role of cell culture conditions on stem cell metabolic outputs.
