I completed my PhD from the University of Portsmouth in 2008 and worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the University. In 2013 I was appointed Technical Manager of the Biophysical Laboratories. I completed my PhD analysing protein-DNA and protein-protein interactions. In my career as a postdoc I worked for the EXRC and analysed Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infections within Xenopus laevis and collaborated with Dr John Spencer (University of Sussex) on small molecule kinase and histone de-acetylase inhibitors.
