Irma completed a PhD at the University of Manchester studying molecular imaging on mouse brain samples using the TOF-SIMS technique.
Prior to joining MDC, Irma worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Manchester. During this time, Irma developed methods for applying Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) to a range of samples using cutting-edge techniques to answer biological questions. Irma has experience with imaging biological tissues using techniques such as DESI, MALDI and TOF-SIMS.
Irma’s current interest is the analysis of complex biological systems using MSI in multi-disciplinary projects and applying new methods and technologies.
