I completed my PhD in medicinal chemistry with Prof Eric Aboagye, Dr Louis Allott and Dr Diana Brickute at Imperial College London, where I developed targeted choline kinase alpha (CHKA) inhibitors via prodrug and peptide receptor targeting strategies. I am currently working with Prof Eric Aboagye and Prof Ramon Vilar as a Research Associate; My project aims to develop Pt-mediated theragnostic platforms that target DNA/RNA.
My main research interests are developing novel diagnostic (radiotracers for PET imaging) and therapeutic reagents (kinase inhibitors, Pt complexes and antibody drug conjugates) for cancer treatment, using chemistry tools such as bioorthogonal chemistry and bioconjugation.
