I completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at King's College, London, graduating in 2014. Consequently I was awarded an MRC Studentship to undertake an MRes in Molecular Biophysics, also at King's, where I carried out a molecular dynamics project investigating mechanisms of action of antimicrobial peptides. Currently I am a 3rd year DPhil student at Wadham College. I am funded by a BBSRC CASE studentship in partnership with UCB.


My current work is on MD simulations of peripheral membrane proteins and their interactions with lipid membranes. I am also interested in Markov state modelling of disordered proteins and mathematical modelling of signalling events.
