Personal profile

Research interests

My research centers on the function of the tumour microenvironment in tumour progression and metastasis. My particular interest lies in the role of tumour associated macrophages: I investigate their plasticity, recruitment and the mechanisms they employ to promote tumour growth and spread. I have also been investigating the versatile effects of chemokine receptor signalling in macrophages.

Supervisory Interests

I supervise projects that investigate tumour associated macrophage subsets and how their gene expression changes in reponse to drug treatments. My projects also study how the pro-tumour macrophage subsets can be selectively targeted for therapeutic purposes.
