Cancer Research UK is creating a global centre-of-excellence for cancer biotherapeutics research and treatment in the City of London
I am the medical and biophysics editor for Physics World. I write and commission articles for the medical physics, and biophysics and bioengineering sections of the website. I did a PhD in molecular physics at Leeds University, followed by a postdoc in the medical physics department. I joined IOP Publishing in 1999, and in 2008 I became editor of the website medicalphysicsweb. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, as well as singing and dancing in musical theatre productions.
