Head of the Cloning Team
I grew up in the rolling hills of Derbyshire. Following a degree in Biological Sciences at Durham, and a PhD in Molecular Virology at Warwick, I spent 3 months working in Zambia before moving to Dundee. I worked as a PostDoc researcher at the James Hutton Institute for 7 years before joining the MRC PPU in 2002. I currently head the MRC PPU Reagents & Services (R&S) Molecular Cloning team. My organised nature is ideally suited to the huge number of projects we need to be managing at any one time. I enjoy the mix of lab work and interaction with the researchers for whom we provide a vital service.
When I’m not in the lab I love playing squash, hillwalking and spending time with my family.
