Joined the group

I obtained my undergraduate degree in 2011 from Leeds Metropolitan University in biomedical science specialising in microbiology and molecular biology. I then obtained a masters degree in Bioscience from the University of Leeds during which I focused on protein characterisation. In 2017 I was awarded my PhD from the University of Bath where I worked on optimising protein secretion of model enzymes in Parageobacillus thermoglucosidasius. Following that I worked briefly as a technician on Dictyostelium discoideum at the university of Bath. In 2018 I then moved to the University of Nottingham as a post-doctoral researcher working in the Soultanas group looking at the interactions between proteins in central carbon metabolism and DNA replication. I am now working in the Carlomagno group studying RNA binding proteins.

In my spare time I enjoy attending punk/metal gigs, and cuddling my dog.
