Technician, Co-Manager of the Microscopy and Histology Facility
I started working at the University as a graduate in 2003 in Ophthalmology carrying out Histological preparations. From there I then joined the Microscopy & Histology Core Facility in 2006.
I specialise in Histology and Transmission Electron Microscopy and have worked with a wide variety of samples (yeast, honey bees, whale, algae to name a few). I am experienced in a wide variety of techniques; high pressure freezing, freeze substitution, microwave processing, resin embedding (for both light & electron microscopy), ultramicrotomy plus histological techniques including paraffin processing, snap freezing, sectioning and staining.
I am currently developing techniques for Correlative Microscopy and Array Tomography.
