Area of academic expertise - outline
I, fairly recently, graduated from the University of Glasgow obtaining my PhD in Forensic Toxicology/Forensic Medicine and Science. My research focuses heavily on forensic toxicology, specifically on development and validation of bioanalytical methods including GC-MS and LC-MS/MS for the detection of drugs of abuse in blood, and alternative matrices such as oral fluid. Further research interests lie within novel extraction techniques with a green chemistry approach to forensic toxicology and further investigations into the usefulness of alternative matrices.
As well as working at UWS, I have gained experience working as a Forensic Toxicologist at Forensic Medicine and Science at the University of Glasgow, including the writing of toxicology reports for the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
My teaching remit includes undergraduate lecturing at UWS, and lecturing at postgraduate level at the University of Glasgow, mainly on basic chemistry, forensic anthropology, forensic toxicology, crime scene investigation, and pharmacology.
Current research activities
My current research activities focus on the development and validation of analytical methods for the detection and quantitation of drugs of abuse in various matrices (standard and alternative).
I am involved in the extraction and detection of insecticides in environmental samples, as well as the application of novel extraction methods to drugs and xenobiotics.
Desired research direction
Ideally, I would like to continue and expand the reseach of forensic science and forensic toxicology collaborating with my collegues, developing extraction and detection techniques for various xenobiotics from a variety of samples (organic and inorganic).
Target collaborative companies
Providers of toxicological analyses, point of care testing (POCT) devices, or sample collection devices.
Providers of services to drug users (for example, needle exchange programmes)
Target collaborative organisations
Private sector companies providing toxicological analyses, POCT devices, and sample collection devices, or those that provide services to drug users.
