In my role in AstraZeneca I am responsible for applying drug delivery approaches which have the potential to enable the progression of innovative medicines. I have been instrumental in introducing nanomedicines into the AstraZeneca portfolio, and initiated several key collaborations, building internal capability in nanomedicines and drug targeting.  

I have a PhD in oral drug delivery to the colon, and a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Manchester.

Having published over 55 peer reviewed papers and six book chapters, I also regularly deliver invited talks, keynotes and plenaries worldwide in nanomedicine and advanced drug delivery.

I am an Honorary Professor at the University of Nottingham and serve on numerous academic and industrial scientific committees and advisory boards in the field of drug delivery.
