Research overview

My main area of interest is in developing spectroscopic techniques (Raman and IR) for biomedical exploration and diagnosis, particularly relating to bone biology. Currently I am developing spatially offset Raman spectroscopy for use in vivo, which includes developing protocols and managing the ethical approvals and recruitment of participants.This includes the continued development of robust computational methodologies for spectral processing and analysis. I am particularly interested in advancing and combining these techniques to translate them into a clinical setting for the high-throughput diagnosis of medical conditions non-invasively in vivo.

PhD supervision

Please contact me if you are interested in undertaking a PhD in any of the following: 1) Raman spectroscopy and bone biology 2) Does non-invasive detection of mineralisation in bone offer an early diagnostic for bone disease? 3) Predicting atypical fracture risk associated with long term bisphosphonate treatment
