In October 2018 I joined Dr. Thomas Ouldridge's lab. I use theory to understand the principles by which molecular systems can generate complex molecules. Currently working on the non-equilibrium generation of information during templated polymer synthesis, as manifest in crucial biological processes such as transcription and translation. I apply information theory, biophysics and non-equilibrium thermodynamics to build simulations.
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a master's degree in Physics in 2017. During my master's, I studied the mechanics of torque generation in the bacterial flagellar motor in E. coli under the supervision of Dr. Richard Berry.
In the summer of 2017 I took part in BIOMOD, an international bio-nanotechnology competition. In Professor Andrew Turberfield's lab we devised RibOxSwitch, a cooperative riboswitch designed to enable tuneable control over protein translation. You can have a look at our work here. Among other tasks, I developed models of our RNA systems, and it was through this experience that I learned about the exciting work going on in Dr. Thomas Ouldridge's lab.
When I am not working on these sort of things, I enjoy teaching, walking, carving wooden spoons, and playing bass in the Imperial College Big Band.
