Skills and Techniques:

This section gives an overview of some of the scientific techniques I have regularly performed at Imperial College London and The University of Medicine and Dentisty, New Jersey. The list is by no means comprehensive, but illustrates the laboratory techniques I am most familiar with. In addition, I have also listed some of my other skills I have been trained in, including teaching and lecturing.
