I joined the Microscopy and Histology Core Facility in 2009, after completing my PhD in the Musculoskeletal Research Programme. Over the years I have gained vast amounts of experience in a large variety of microscopy and sample preparation techniques. I can provide training on all the microscopes in the facility and can also deal with sample preparation and training on the transmission and scanning electron microscopes. I am a proficient user of the two micro CT scanners at the university. I am especially interested in electron tomography and 3D printing. I'm keen on public engagement and have taken part in events such as Mayfest. I am also a STEM ambassador and take part in the STEM Club at Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital. I'm an active member and the Aberdeen representative of the Scottish Microscopy Society committee. I am the Laser Protection Supervisor for the IMS and am available to answer any laser safety questions or concerns, I also sit on the IMS Health and Safety committee.
