Hi and welcome to my ePortfolio page.
I joined MOAC in 2008 after reading Biochemistry at Warwick from 2004-2007 and graduating with first class honours.
After completing my undergraduate degree and before joining MOAC I took a gap year. You can find out a bit more about what I did during that year here and in an article that appeared in the Coventry Telegraph.
I applied to study at MOAC after my undergraduate degree as I wanted to work more closely at the interface between biology and chemistry and had an interest in developing more chemical skills to address biological problems.
My PhD was entitled Structure and Mechanistic Studies of Acetolactate Decarboxylase and I worked under the supervision of Professor Martin Wills (Chemistry) and Professor Vilmos Fulop (Life Sciences) continuing the work I begun on the project during my MSc.
This work has been recently published in ACS Chemical Biology.
