Background and research interests

I am DPhil student in the Systems Approaches to Biomedical Sciences Centre for Doctoral Training (SABS CDT). As such, I am interested in combining my background in biochemistry and biotechnology with computational approaches in the facilitation of computationally driven drug development and the in silico investigation of human regenerative biology and its medical applications.


2017 - Doctoral training in the SABS CDT, University of Oxford
2016 - 2017 MSc in Applied Biosciences and Biotechnology, Imperial College London
2013 - 2016 BSc in Biochemistry, University of Heidelberg, Germany

Current research

Previous projects

2017 MSc thesis in the group of Dr Morgan Beeby, Imperial College London.

To facilitate cryoEM analysis of rotational molecular machinery, I developed software to locate and classify symmetry mismatch in cryoEM tomography of these structures.

2016 Final year undergraduate project in the group of Professor Gary Ruvkun, Massachusetts General Hospital, MA, USA.

During a research placement in the Ruvkun group, I investigated the influence of the skn-1a mediated proteasome regulation on stress resistance and longevity in C. elegans using biochemistry, genetics and bioinformatics approaches.

2015 Undergraduate research placement in the group of Professor Bill Rutherford, Imperial College London.

Over the duration of a short research placement in the Rutherford group, I was involved in the investigation of the function of rogue D1 proteins of photosystem II in the cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis
