Jairah Lubay


I completed my undergraduate MSci degree in Biochemistry at the University of East Anglia and undertook a masters research project in characterising phytase enzymes in plants, where I experienced utilising HPLC-MS and ICP-MS.

Previous research experience include:

  • University of East Anglia, Internship: Analysis of solution state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxation data of an intrinsically disordered protein.
  • Institute of Biophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Placement: Investigating G4 quadruplex DNA formation and DNA interactions using CD spectroscopy and AFM.

Current Research

My current research is focused on the development of fast magic-angle spinning (MAS) solid-state NMR methods for applications to biological systems. I am supervised by Steven BrownLink opens in a new window and Józef Lewandowski, and funded by Bruker and the University of Warwick. I am also interested in the use of relevant model compounds for proteins and plant cell walls.
