I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2015 with a BSc in Biochemistry. For my undergraduate dissertation I worked on a lab based research project attempting to determine the mutational frequency, and possible DNA repair enzymes, of the DNA lesion 8-nitroguanine.

Currently, I am a BBSRC-DTP2 funded PhD student where my project is aiming to identify the post translational modifications that occur on the protein ‘hypoxia induced factor’, which causes the stabilisation of the protein in low oxygen environments. Medically, continual stabilisation of hypoxia induced factor has been linked with many solid tumours; causing the survival and enhanced growth of these cancers with a poor oxygen supply.
