Where to find me
I have an undergraduate Masters degree in Biochemistry (MBioch) from Oxford University. I also did my PhD (in Pathology) at Oxford University. My thesis was on metabolic enzymes in the flagellum a trypanosome (a parasite which cause human African trypanosomiasis). After that, I did a postdoc at the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth, researching calcium regulation in the flagella of the green algae, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
