Academic Interests

My main area of interest is structural bioinformatics, encompassing many topics such as de novo protein structure prediction, evolution of protein structure and antibody design for therapeutic use. I have focused particularly on the analysis of membrane proteins during the course of my DPhil, due to the greater challenges they present in expression and crystallisation, and the resulting lack of structural data available.

Other Activities

I learnt to row at Oxford and I have represented OUWLRC in the 2012 boat race, as well as my college. More recently, I have been playing squash for the university. I have held a number of positions of responsibility for these clubs.
