Research summary

My research area is the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. I am investigating how stem cells in the epidermis are responsible for maintaining and repairing the tissue, and how they contribute to cancer. My findings are relevant to several common skin conditions, notably psoriasis, chronic wounds, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
