Christina Rhima - Inhalation Scientist

Christina’s experience is in the analysis of inhaled therapies for the treatment of COPD and Asthma. During her time at Contract Research Organisations (CROs) PPD Ireland and Melbourn Scientific (now Intertek Melbourn), she developed extensive knowledge of all aspects of inhaler testing including method development, operation, and validation of a variety of analytical instruments and techniques including the Next Generation Impactor (NGI), Malvern Spraytec, and Proveris SprayVIEW®. Christina has experience of working under GLP/GMP conditions with mono, combo and triple pMDI and DPI formulations including new chemical entities and generics.

During her spare time, Christina enjoys a variety of sports, including football, tag rugby and more recently weightlifting in the form of CrossFit.

She has a 1st Class Hons degree in Forensic Science and Investigative Analysis, which may explain her eagle-eyed ability to identify evidence of the merest transgressions in the lab.
