Rhona graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2018 with a first class Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering. During this time, she spent six months at a biomechanical engineering lab at Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, where she worked on a project that involved modelling the migration of endothelial cells. Rhona then went on to study for a PhD in Optical Medical Imaging with Healthcare Innovation and Entrepreneurship, a PhD that was jointly awarded by the Universities of Edinburgh and Strathclyde.
The aim of her PhD project was to determine if glycation, and thus diabetes, could be detected and monitored non-invasively using skin fluorescence.
In 2022, Rhona joined the software team at Keltie as a Patent Assistant.
