Postdoctoral Scientist

Erythropoiesis is metabolically regulated and environmentally sensitive. Characterisation of these processes is required to understand the conditions required for appropriate red blood cell production. I take genomic, cellular and metabolic approaches to answer questions in this context.

Before joining the Drakesmith group with a MRC WIMM scholarship, I graduated from the University of Bath in 2017 with a 1st class BSc(Hons) in Biology. Here I had the great pleasure of working with Professor David Tosh and Professor Tony Perry. I also spent a year at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney, during my undergraduate degree.
