Christian joined Costello Medical after completing his PhD, and a short post-doctoral position, in Plant Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. His academic research focused on the development of industrial algal biotechnology, for applications such as biofuels, aquaculture and wastewater treatment. Before this, Christian received a first-class BSc in Biological Sciences from the University of Bath, specialising in genomics and biotechnology, and spent a year performing toxicology research at Dartmouth College in the USA. Christian has published multiple peer-reviewed and popular science publications, and presented his work via posters and presentations at numerous international conferences.

Christian is passionate about commercialising science, and in 2015 led a team to the final of the Biotechnology Young Entrepreneur Scheme with their idea for an innovative, sustainable sunscreen made from algae. In his role as Cross-Divisional Analyst, Christian looks forward to using his scientific and commercial skills across a diverse range of projects. He is particularly looking forward to further expanding his knowledge of the healthcare industry.
