Christian joined Costello Medical after completing his PhD and a post-doctoral position in Plant Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge, where his research focused on the development of sustainable biofuels. 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 oncology/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. In addition, he recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Economics at the University of York.

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 Senior Analyst in the MedTech Division, Christian enjoys tackling the unique challenges faced by medical device manufacturers, large and small, across market access, health economics, and health technology assessment.
