2013 - present DPhil Systems Approaches to Biomedical Science, University of Oxford (New College)
2009 - 2013 MBiochem in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, University of Oxford (New College)
Fourth year options: bionanotechnology and membrane transport.
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.
2015 - present Exploring incorporation of cotranslational aspects of protein folding into a fragment-based structure prediction program, particularly in the context of membrane protein folding
2014 - 2015 Further work on the conservation of kinks
2014 11-week project on conformational sampling of antibodies using MOSAICS, supervised by Dr. Peter Minary and in partnership with UCB
2014 - 2015 Taught a maths class of undergraduate biomedical science students
2015, 2016, 2017 Demonstrated for the structural biology module at the Doctoral Training Centre
2016 Demonstrated for the programming module at the Doctoral Training Centre
2015, 2016 Demonstrated for undergraduate biochemistry second year practical in metabolic modelling
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.
