Ashleigh achieved a first-class honours degree from Queen’s University Belfast in Biochemistry with Professional Studies. During her career, Ashleigh spent over 5 years in R&D within Randox Laboratories, where she developed clinical diagnostic tests for various automated and semi-automated analysers. During her time here she developed a point-of-care multiplex test for thyroid disorders and led a team of scientists in the development of a novel Covid-19 test. Ashleigh’s experience within a research setting has given her the skillset required for writing technical reports for R&D tax credit claims.

In her spare time Ashleigh enjoys tackling DIY projects, gardening, travelling or just sitting down with a good book.
