I joined the Unit in October 2020 on a 4-year MRC-funded PhD studentship. Recently, I joined the Sapkota lab for my first of two rotation projects. My first project will be centred around two aims: (1) to degrade specific CK1 isoforms in the cell using the ligand inducible AdPROM system and (2) to control target protein localisation for the purpose of investigating their PROTAC-mediated degradation. 

Prior to my PhD, I completed a BSc (Hons) in Molecular Biology at the University of Edinburgh before obtaining an MRes in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Glasgow. I thoroughly enjoyed my two MRes projects, which both focused on protein signalling. My first project supervised by Prof. Joanna Wilson investigated the effect of USP7 activity and Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1) on NF-kB regulation. My second project supervised by Dr. Ian Salt explored the anti-inflammatory properties of AMPK and its regulation of IRAK4.
