Biography

Profile

I graduated in 2016 with a BSc in Biomedical Science from King's College London. My main focus was in ab-initio protein structure prediction. In my final year, I studied protein engineering, theoretical chemistry, and epigenetics. My dissertation concerned the application of stochastic models and theoretical chemistry to protein reaction dynamics. During my BSc I felt like the course never covered the physics and mathematics applied to non-equilibrium systems that is paramount to understanding protein folding, pathways, and structural prediction. Many fields in science that are considered independent actually have significant overlap, and certain topics require a cross-disciplinary approach that is often unavoidable.

I believe that the CANES programme will enable me to explore cross-disciplinary methodologies that I can apply in my own research.
