I’m a scientist - a microbiologist by trade - now working as a bioinformatician at the University of York.
In the past, I’ve studied for a PhD looking at iron acquisition and its role in the virulence of Pasteurella multocida causing pneumonia in cattle, at the Moredun Research Institute. I’ve also worked as a postdoc, building metabolic models of the nutritional symbiosis between aphids and their bacterial symbionts Buchnera.
Now, I work as a bioinformatician as part of the Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders at the University of York, contributing to a range of projects from cancer to parasitic infections to ancient dental pathogens.
In my spare time, I enjoy tinkering with electronics, especially the Raspberry Pi, photography and reading graphic novels.
