In the summer 2017, I will start my own research group, in the department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Sheffield.
I am currently a senior fellow in the lab of Dr Justin Kollman at the University of Washington (Seattle), where I am using cryo-EM to characterize bacterial nano-machines.
I completed my PhD at King's College London, under the supervisions of Professor Michael Malim and Dr Mark Sanderson, where I investigated molecular aspects of the interaction between the HIV protein Vif, and its binding partners EloBC. Subsequently I moved to the University of British Columbia (Vancouver), where I characterized the type III secretion system using a combination of NMR, X-ray crystallography and Electron Microscopy.
Outside the lab (and occasionally inside the lab too), I mostly enjoy music and beer. I am part of a band called Structure 2 Function, which plays geeky academia-related alternative rock/electro.
