PhD Student

Research subject areas

  • Chemistry


Daisy first came across the area of membrane biophysics during her undergraduate studies at Imperial College London, and completed her final-year research project on the study of a transmembrane protein pore by fluorescence imaging in giant unilamellar vesicles. Having gained an appreciation for the interdisciplinary nature of the field, Daisy moved on to her postgraduate research with Professors Mark Wallace, Oscar Ces and John Seddon utilising fluorescence imaging techniques and electrophysiological measurements to explore artificial membranes, their interaction with transmembrane proteins and DNA capture by protein pores. She gained her MRes in 2019 and is now entering the final year of her PhD.
