I am a Meres Research Fellow at St John’s College and a Schmidt Science Fellow working between the Centre for Misfolding Diseases at the Department of Chemistry and the Maxwell Centre at the Department of Physics.
My research is centred around studying and understanding the behaviour of biological molecules and systems, in particular proteins. After working on the development of new biophysical approaches for the study of biomolecular interactions and protein aggregation during my PhD degree, I have now with the support of the Schmidt Science Fellowship pivoted to computational research where I use a range of computational techniques for understanding the chemistry and physics of biomolecular interactions. In particular, my work brings experimental insight together with state-of-the-art computational approaches, including molecular dynamics simulations and molecular machine learning. Recently, my research focus has been on understanding the formation and potential modulation of biomolecular condensates in cells and their implication in health and disease.
