I am currently in my first year of a PhD as part of the MRC Doctoral Training Partnership at Wawick Medical School, supervised by Dr Karuna Sampath. From September 2015-16 I studied for an MSc in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research in which I carried out two lab rotations with Dr Nick Waterfield and Dr Karuna Sampath.


2016 - present: PhD, Warwick Medical School, University of Warwick

"The regulation of Nodal translation in zebrafish embryonic progenitors and human cells"

Supervised by Dr Karuna Sampath and Dr Till Bretschneider

2015 - 2016: MSc Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research (Merit), University of Warwick 

Miniproject 1: “The role of the secreted metalloprotease PrtA in adaptation to the human host in Photorhabdus asymbiotica” - Supervised by Dr Nick Waterfield

Miniproject 2: “The regulation of Nodal signalling and squint localisation in early zebrafish embyros" - Supervised by Dr Karuna Sampath

2010 - 2014: MBiolSci Biology (Upper second class), University of Sheffield

Final year project: "Genetic co-option in Daphnia pulex: does the appendage gene wingless play a role in the development of neckteeth?"

Final year dissertation: "The generation of new genes and evolutionary novelty."
