I'm a second-year PhD student based at Silwood Park. Under the supervision of Prof. Austin Burt I am investigating methods of gene drive control in Anopheles gambiae.
My project is aligned with the SSCP DTP programme run by the Grantham Institute.
MRes Systems and Synthetic Biology - Imperial College
Supervised by Dr. Nikolai Windbichler I worked on the characterization of novel shuffling recombinases for the generation of repeat protein libraries.
BSc Biological Sciences - Imperial College
As my final year project, supervised by Prof. Andrea Crisanti and Barbara Fasulo, I investigated gene drive designs for the control of invasive Drosophila suzukii populations.
For my second year dissertation I was also supervised by Prof. Crisanti, assessing the feasibility of using gene drives for achieving New Zealand's "Predator Free 2050" goals.
