I completed by PhD at Imperial College London under the supervision of Prof. Steve Matthews with a particular focus on the use of NMR to solve the structure of Immune Mapped Protein 1 (IMP1) from Plasmodium falciparum.

My first postdoctoral position was at King's College London under the supervision of Prof. Jim McDonnell where I studied allosteric communication within Immunoglobulin E (IgE) upon ligand binding using NMR and SPR. This project was a collaborative one with UCB Pharma.

I am currently on my second postdoctoral project under the supervision of Prof. Kurt Drickamer and Dr. Maureen Taylor and the focus of the project is to study host-pathogen interactions through human lectins by using a lectin array.
