I am currently in the first year of my PhD, as part of the MRC funded Doctorial training programme, investigating Penicillin-binding proteins as targets for novel antimicrobials in the biothreat pathogen Yersinia pestis, supervised by Prof. Chris Dowson.

Education

2015-2016: MSc Interdisciplinary Biomedical Reseach, The University of Warwick- Distinction.

I completed my MSc in Interdisplinary Biomedical Reserach, as part of the Medical Research Council Doctorial Training Partnership (MRC DTP) in October 2016.


The MSc was comprised of 6 months of taught modules in interdisciplinary subjects (such as biology, chemistry, statistics and computer science), teaching students their role in biomedical research. I then carried out two 3 months research projects: The first with Prof. Chris Dowson on Pencillin-binding proteins as targets for novel antimicrobials in the biothreat pathogen Yersinia pestis, and the second with Dr. Nick Waterfield, constructing a fluorescent reporter strain to reveal the differential deployment of toxin nano-syringe operons in the bacterial pathogen Photorhabdus.

2011-2015: BSc (Hons) Medical Science, The University of Edinburgh- 2.1

Dissertation project: "Retinal Imaging for Biomarker Discovery in Hypertension and Chronic Kidney Disease" supervised by Dr Tom MacGillivray.
