Ph.D. University of Liverpool (2018)

I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2014 with a BSc in Biochemistry. During the final year of my degree I completed a research project in which I used confocal imaging to characterise proteins involved in border cell migration in Drosophila, as a model for ovarian cancer in humans.

In October 2014, I joined the CPR on a combined MRes/PhD, BBSRC funded studentship supervised by Professor Claire Eyers and Dr Daimark Bennett. During this time, I used (phospho)proteomics approaches to interrogate the role of protein phosphatase 1 and its nuclear targeting subunit, PNUTS, in Drosophila development, identifying binding partners and potential substrates with immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry analysis.

Since completing my PhD in 2018, I have been working as a NWCR funded postdoctoral research associate within the CPR. In collaboration with Professor Neil Perkins and his research group in Newcastle we are applying quantitative (phospho)proteomics approaches to the study of NF-κB signalling.
