About

My research is focussed on developing and applying synthetic biology approaches to the Euglenozoa, a monophylletic group including both free living algae and parasitic eukaryotes. I am taking a multidisciplinary approach to establish metabolic capacity and utility of different species in this group. This includes developing transformation protocols, characterising metabolic capacity and applying high-throughput sequencing approaches for novel pathway discovery. These disparate approaches are used to facilitate targeted engineering of complex metabolic pathways for the production of compounds for industrial, biotechnology and medicinal applications.
