I completed my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Southampton. After graduating in 2009, I moved to Liverpool to take a Research Assistant post in CPR (then PFG). During the last eight years I have been involved in multiple projects including CoPY – Census of the Proteome of Yeast, collaborative work with Avacta and their Affimer technology, DOSCAT standards, E.coli proteome turnover proteomics and many more besides.
In addition to my Research Assistant role, I also completed an MPhil in my spare time, supervised by Prof Beynon. In my thesis, entitled “QconCAT method development and applications in proteomics”, I reviewed how I shortened and streamlined the production workflow for the QconCAT protein standards.
I am still involved in various research projects, as well as assisting Prof Beynon and Prof Eyers with the general running of CPR, organising lab events, training and conferences, and taking a lead in coordinating STEM and outreach activities for the group.
