I am currently a PhD student at the University of St Andrews. My undergraduate degree in biomolecular science bridged the divide between chemistry and biology in a like manner to my PhD. Working with both category I and II microorganisms means I have excellent aseptic technique. Furthermore, I am competent in microbiology techniques in addition to synthetic and analytical chemistry. I am skilled in the identification, production, isolation and characterisation of natural products, as well as the production and purification of proteins.
