Research interests

Male infertility and germ cell biology

My lab researches the key mechanisms required for male germ cell development, the aetiology of human male infertility and the interplay between fertility and health. This is achieved using a range of genomic, biochemical and cell biological methods, including the development of unique model systems.

  • Male fertility
  • infertility
  • spermatogenesis
  • andrology

Research projects

  • Investigating the role of a novel dynein transport system in sperm tail formation
  • Characterising the sperm mitochondrial sheath size and structure across species
