About

I am currently an MRC Career Development Fellow in the group of Mike Gilchrist at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research. The group is part of the systems biology division and uses computational tools and genetic methods to understand early embryo development. Prior to this, I worked 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 simoulation and electronic structure calculation. I completed my Ph.D. thesis at the University of Bristol under the supervision of Prof. Adrian Mulholland, also in the field of computational enzymology.
