I have a general interest in the cell and molecular biology of plants. My past research experience has particularly focused on molecular evolution, working with both plants and bacteria.Through the DTP, I hope to particularly further my skills in cell biology and imaging to complement my previous molecular biology work. I particularly appreciate research environments which are interested in the translational applications of their work and are varied in their research focus.

Outside of science, I have numerous interests. I held several elected JCR commitee positions during my undergraduate studies as well as being social secretary for my final year undergraduate course. Other hobbies include walking, skiing and cooking.
