Background

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry with Molecular Biology from the University of Leeds. I then pursued my computational interests by studying for a Master’s of Research in Computational Biology at the University of York. My dissertation took place in John Slattery’s lab, where I used quantum mechanics and molecular dynamics methods to explore the reaction mechanism of the tungsten dependent acetylene hydratase.

I am currently in the second year of a D.Phil in Structural Biology, funded by BBSRC and UCB.

 

Research

My current project focuses on structure based drug design and how molecular dynamic (MD) methods can facilitate and improve drug discovery. I am looking at how MD can be used to create better and more accurate dynamic pharmacophore models.

 

Employment

• Wellcome Trust and DTP computational practical class demonstrator — The University of Oxford (2015 – present).

 

Interests

Member of Oxford University Rifle Club.
