I started my scientific career at the University of Liverpool and completed my PhD in 2012. I then moved to Finland and worked at the University of Jyvaskyla and the University of Helsinki. Returning to the UK in 2017, I began my current role as a research support technician. I now support research activity in the departments of Evolution, Ecology and Behaviour and Functional and Comparative Genomics. I carry out molecular biology protocols on a range of organisms for a range of purposes and support the daily running of the lab.
