Personal Statement

I attained my Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Science from the University of Essex in 2012 and subsequently went on to complete my PhD in Microbial genomics at the University of Liverpool in 2016. My research looked at the wood eating termite gut consortium and the roles of Spirochetes therein. I am currently working with Professor Christiane Hertz-Fowler's group as a genome database curator and annotator for EuPathDB and GeneDB.
