In July of 2015 I graduated from The University of Leeds with a first class integrated masters and Bsc degree in genetics. In September 2015 I joined the centre for doctoral training in synthetic biology at The University of Oxford. The program consists of six months of comprehensive training for skills in synthetic biology, followed by laboratory rotations, and a further three years substantive PhD project. My research interests centre around the use of synthetic biology, and more specifically the design and implementation of synthetic genetic circuits for improvements in agricultre and industrial biotechnology.
