Running, watching movies and meals out with friends
Currently undertaking a 12-week short project in developing synthetic tissues with Professor Hagan Bayley
Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford, Professor Dame Carol Robinson (2016-2017)
Expression and purification of the BAM complex for native mass spectrometry. Investigated the effects of lipids to the structure and function of the BAM complex.
Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford, Professor Harry Anderson (2016)
The synthesis of precursors to porphyrin nanotubes was improved by pursuing a more efficient procedure which dramatically increased relative yield.

MurJ, a membrane protein ‘flippase’ for the translocation of peptidoglycan precursor Lipid II was cloned, expressed and purified. The protein was optimised for analysis and successfully sprayed by nano-ESI native mass spectrometry.
Department of Chemistry, University of Reading, Professor Howard Colquhoun (2013)
Investigated the ‘self healing’ properties of blended polymers formed by the complexation between polyimides and poly(ether-ketone)s.
Department of Chemistry, Kings College London, Professor Ulrike Eggert (2013)
Used a screening technique designed to observe the suppression or enhancement of RNAi effects following treatment with ‘Rhoblock’ compounds found to disrupt the ‘Rho pathway’ which controls cytokinesis.
Department of Chemistry, University of Reading, Professor Howard Colquhoun (2012)
Two novel ‘code reading’ molecules were synthesised and characterised which were able to complexate with a ‘code’ aromatic poly(ether-ketone) of alternating residues as a proof of principal model for novel data storage.
