About

I currently work in scientific computing, at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London. Prior to this, I had a research career that started with my Ph.D. thesis at the University of Bristol under the supervision of Prof. Adrian Mulholland, in the field of computational enzymology, before working as a postdoctoral research associate in the group of Prof. Dominik Marx, at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, in Germany. My research there consisted of computational simulation of proteins and enzymatic catalysis, via techniques such as molecular dynamics simulation and electronic structure calculation. I then moved to the MRC National Institute for Medical Research (later the Francis Crick Institute) in London, to work in Mike Gilchrist's research group, using computational tools and genetic methods to understand early embryo development and genomic information in Xenopus.
