Daisy joined the membrane biophysics group in 2018 as part of the Institute of Chemical Biology CDT programme, under the joint supervision of Professor Oscar Ces, Professor John Seddon and Professor Mark Wallace at King's College London. She works between the membrane biophysics group at White City and the Wallace Group at King's, in collaboration with Oxford Nanopore Technologies.
Daisy's research interests encompass the formation and study of droplet interface bilayers using block copolymers, and the subsequent incorporation of nanopores into these membranes. Block copolymers offer wider possibilities for building membranes with different properties, and are more stable than their lipid counterparts whilst retaining the ability to support nanopores.
Prior to undertaking the CDT, Daisy obtained a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry from Imperial.
Alongside her studies, Daisy has a keen interest in and passion for public engagement, outreach and science communication, and as such has recently begun voluntary work as a STEM Ambassador.
