I've recently graduated with a PhD in the Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Computational Proteomics Group (BMSCPG) of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College, supervised by Dr. Peter DiMaggio.

During my PhD I developed an assay for accurately profiling the substrate specificity of histone lysine methyltransferases, enzymes involved in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression, bringing together structural bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, chemical biology and mass spectrometry approaches.

In addition, I've also worked as a research assistant at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences in the group of Professor Luis Aragon (Cell Cycle). I focused my research there on the design of novel antibiotics for typhoid fever based on biomolecular simulations, and also on analyzing the effect of phosphorylations in the interaction of cell cycle regulatory proteins.
