I'm a PhD student at the Francis Crick Institute in London, working in the Cell Fate and Gene Regulation Laboratory with Dr. Folkert van Werven.

I love science, and try to explore the world - one molecule at a time.

For my PhD, I'm studying the mechanisms of gene expression in budding yeast through molecular and cellular biology, and bioinformatics.

I completed a BSc Biochemistry degree at UCL.

I undertook a summer project on the structures of large transcriptional coactivators at the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology (ISMB UCL/Birkbeck) with Dr. Alan Cheung.

I then completed my BSc final year project on the signalling functions of epithelial tight junction-associated Marvel proteins, with Prof. Karl Matter at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology.

Engaging with the public about the interesting science we do is important to me, and I enjoy it a lot.

I live in London, but grew up in Vancouver, Canada. I originally planned to become an astronaut when I was little; an impactful UBC Biochemistry professor convinced me otherwise.

In my free time, I love to play basketball, cook, eat, and travel. I also love Formula One, and most things space-related. I'm still waiting for the second season of Firefly. My favourite proteins are pikachurin and RNA Polymerase.
