I initially joined the MRC PPU in 2016, where I investigated the molecular mechanisms underlying hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma in the Sapkota lab. Subsequently, I joined the Muqit lab in April 2020 and am studying how Parkinson’s disease-associated mutations affect the mitochondrial proteome and metabolome that is jointly supervised by Ian Ganley in the PPU.
I obtained my BSc. in Molecular Cell Biology from the University of York, and completed my PhD with Prof. Corrado Santocanale at the National University of Ireland Galway, where I studied the regulation of Topoisomerase II alpha by the DNA replication kinase CDC7.
Outside the lab I enjoy playing badminton, rock climbing, hiking (when it’s not raining), and board games (when it is!).
